Kelso High pupils last Thursday celebrated World Book Day with events around the school.
The theme was “favourite childhood books” and all staff were asked to nominate their favourite one to be displayed as a poster on their classroom doors. A competition is currently being run in conjunction with this.
S6 students attended school dressed as fictional characters, turning up in classrooms to read from books to pupils and teachers. Staff also read from their most-loved publications at the beginning of each lesson.
S1 took part in a book quiz during English classes, followed by a grand final in the assembly hall on World Book Day. Tom Murray, Scottish Borders Council’s reader-in-residence, acted as quizmaster. S1 pupils were also asked to judge the S6 fancy dress contest via a cleverly-devised clapometer.
Children are currently voting on their own favourite children’s books for a Kelso High School Top Ten.
