Let’s ignite young people’s joy of reading without the need to inflict ANY financial burden on families. Some ideas:

πŸ“– Have fun making book marks using school supplies

πŸ“–Organise a story telling event e.g. P7 pupils could read to P1 pupils

πŸ“– Create a buzz at school by having an Author visit

πŸ“– Host a costume swap rail

πŸ“– Organise a poster competition promoting events (winner could enjoy a story read by their favourite teacher)

πŸ“– Invite Parents in to school to read with their children whilst enjoying refreshments

What does your child’s school do on World Book Day that doesn’t put ANY financial pressure on families? Parents: could you can bring these up with your school? Teachers: could you implement these into your lessons?
