World Book Day 2023
Another fabulous World Book Day Celebration was held at Hallfield, this time including parents in the morning events!
2 March 2023
Halls and classrooms buzzed with hundreds of enthusiastic parents, children, and staff, resplendent in wonderful costumes from their favourite books. Pupils and parents enjoyed a delicious breakfast provided by Holroyd Howe, over their favourite book.
Pre-Prep and Prep assemblies were held in the morning, and The Masked Reader returned by popular demand with fabulous and well disguised readings by members of staff.
The costumes, once again, were fabulous and thanks to our discerning judges – the true spirit of competition was captured by identifying such well balanced and fair criteria to select our worthy and very happy winners and runners up.
