Maragon Ruimsig High School learners celebrate World Book Day
Great fun was had by Maragon Ruimsig High School whilst celebrating World Book Day, or also known as the International Day of the Book. The day was organised by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. It is traditionally held on Shakespeare’s birthday every year, and has been going since 1995.
The High School uses it as a charitable drive where students and staff dress up as their favourite literary character, and as ‘payment’ for their opportunity to wear their costume they donate a book. These books are then given to a charity chosen by the English Department. This year the delivery will go to the FORA Book sales to raise funds for our furry friends.
A further challenge was extended, and each grade and department was dared to do something original. The winners of the competition were clearly the Grade 10s who came dressed in black and white for the novel, Noughts & Crosses, and the Natural Sciences Department who came as the Mario Brothers.
