World Book Day, which this year celebrates its 20thanniversary, takes place on Thursday 2nd March 2017. World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading. It is designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading and is marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
In St. Benedict’s College we always celebrate World Book Day. As part of this year’s 20th anniversary celebrations, we will be organising various competitions and promoting reading on a much larger scale amongst pupils and staff.
