World Book Day is a day designated by UNESCO for the celebration of books and reading and is marked in over 100 countries all over the world. On this day, authors, illustrators and books are celebrated and children are made aware of the fact that reading, especially for pleasure, can be very rewarding.
The day was marked at GIS Primary with interesting book reviews by grade 6 pupils while grade one pupils had a keenly contested inter-house Spelling competition.
Also, as part of the activities to mark the day, book vendors and exhibitors displayed their book wares for two days so parents could, in the spirit of the event, patronize/purchase for their kids and as well as make donation to the school library.
‘Leaders are readers’ says a sage – so, as we at GIS do our best to promote supplementary reading in our pupils, we encourage parents to make it a duty not to give a present to a child without a book.
