World Book Day meets Fairtrade

Towers School Book Characters
The Towers Convent in Upper Bedding reports that:
"Pupils and staff dressed up as characters from their favourite books in order to raise money for cancer charities and celebrate World Book Day. There were various book-related activities organised throughout the day as well as a Fairtrade Coffee Morning to highlight Fairtrade fortnight. The event was planned by Dr Frankenstein (Ms Hansell, Head of English) and Miss Havisham (Mrs Taswell, Librarian), but all staff participated. The girls in the Senior School had the opportunity to buy books from a selection provided by Steyning Book Shop and buy cakes and chocolates from the Fairtrade tuck shop team supervised by the Worst Witch (Senior Teacher, Ms Lowe). 

Mrs Baker (Headmistress) entered into the spirit of the day by dressing as one of the many 'Where's Wallys' and judged the Senior Costumes which ranged from an illuminated 'lamp from Narnia' to an amazing 'Fantastic Mr Fox'. The children all entered into the day with great gusto and raised £146:38 from the sale of the fairtrade produce which will go to the Nursery School in Soweto supported by the girls and a further £200 for cancer research from the Book Day costumes.
