It's a tradition at Seaford to celebrate World Book Day with a World Book Week.




Students recently enjoyed an inspiring World Book Week featuring a dress-up day and an interactive assembly, and visits from a performance poet and a variety of fiction and non-fiction authors.

Events kicked off with all Prep School students dressing up, completing the ‘design a door competition’ and doing a workshop with author and children’s writer Jo Simmons. World Book Week organiser Gen Bayley, the School Librarian, then led an entertaining interactive assembly with Years 9 to 13 students.

During the rest of the week, students took part in talks and workshops with author and professional footballer Seth Burkett, performance poet Adisa the Verbalizer and author and martial arts expert Chris Bradford who entertained students with stories from his Bodyguard and Samurai series of books.

Gen Bayley said: “It’s been a huge success and I’m so glad all students across the College have enjoyed and fully engaged with the variety of different performances and assemblies on offer. Reading is for everyone no matter what age and my aim is to inspire, engage and excite students at every level and get them talking about books and literacy in whatever form that takes.”

Gen also thanked all the teachers, especially those who featured in her very funny World Book Day video shown at the Senior assembly.
