On Thursday 7th March, we celebrated World Book Day here at Horizon. We decided that Ormiston “Quotes” Academy would be our theme for the day this year (having done Ormiston Hogwarts and Ormiston Heroes & Villains in the past). In celebration of the day, Miss Gardner, our Director of Literacy, organised a plethora of activities for the students to enjoy: Miss Gardner led fun-filled WBD assemblies all week; personal tutors delivered World Book Day PowerPoints in personal tutor time; staff wore World Book Day t-shirts; the catering team prepared delicious cupcakes which had quotes written onto the icing; students took part in narrative writing workshops led by renowned author, Michelle Harrison; English teachers delivered WBD-themed lessons and there have also been various WBD competitions running. There was a real buzz in the academy on the day and it was thoroughly enjoyed by staff and students alike. We look forward to celebrating World Book Day again next March!
