On 7 March 2013 Stanborough School students took up the spirit of the World Book Day with enthusiasm and excitement! Both our local students and the group of visiting students from Spain participated in a specially adapted version of “Who wants to be a millionaire?” quiz. Categories included: Bible, Literature, History, Geography, Science, Stanborough Library and General Knowledge.
Boys outshone the girls on this occasion taking the first 3 prizes but the girls are quite determined to claim the first place next year! While the three winning teams received their prizes, all students received a book token. St Albans Waterstones set up a table in the Assembly Hall to ensure that all students had an opportunity to exchange their tokens for a ‘World Book Day’ free book.
After lunch Stanborough students opened their books and enjoyed an uninterrupted hour of reading. And why not? A book is like a wallet. You don’t know what’s inside until you open it
