World Book Day is a registered charity on a mission to give every child and young person a book of their own. It’s also a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
This is the 23rd year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 5th March 2020, children of all ages will came together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.
Arc School Old Arley went all out to ensure they dressed up and looked the part - choosing their favourite characters to come to school as. What a fantastic effort from everyone - well done.
The school is an independent specialist day school situated within a rural village near Nuneaton, providing education for children and young people between the ages of 7 to 16 who have a wide range of varying needs including social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH).
