As with everything in the last 12 months World Book Day looked a bit different this year but thanks to everyone who entered the Pupil Librarians’ World Book Day Competition. The variety of submissions really surprised and delighted us. From fan fiction, to songs, dressing up and food entries, we loved them all.
The Year 9 Pupil Librarians met the day after World Book Day (on Teams naturally) and voted on their favourites. It was a difficult choice given that the standard of entry was really high but the winner was clear. Congratulations to Advika W. (7-6), your picture was beautifully executed and perfectly captures the mood of the time.
I have circulated an electronic version of the £1 World Book Day book token on Teams but when we get back in the library, if you’d prefer, you can come and collect a paper token. We also have a limited number of the £1 World Book Day books to buy with your token. You can use the token after the expiry date advertised so you’ll be able to use it when the shops reopen.
Take a look at all the entries. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did:
On Friday 13th December, AGGS hosted their very own Pointless Quiz. The event had been kindly organised by the IT Technicians and took place to raise money for the library. Mr Adshead was also the compere. The quiz’s contestants were:
Mr Lovelady and Mr Murray,
Mr Carr and Mrs Hulme;
Mr Starnes, and Mr Gough,
Dr Roberts and Mrs Russell.
The game consisted of six rounds, each with a different category (the aim of the game being that each team had to try and guess the least common answer). After a brief introduction from each teacher, the game began.
Round 1 – Words without vowels (Mr Lovelady + Mr Murray were eliminated)
Round 2 – Geography/flags (Mr Starnes + Mr Gough out)
Round 3 – Theme tunes
Round 4 – Breed of dogs
Round 5 – Fruit in foreign languages (Mr Carr + Mrs Hulme came second place)
Last round – 50 most followed twitter accounts
Dr Roberts and Mrs Russell won a glass plate, engraved with the AGGS Pointless Quiz logo. The quiz managed to raise over £160 for the library. It was a wonderful event, and a great start to the festive season.
