World Book Day Winners

The whole school community celebrated World Book Day in inimitable St Mary’s fashion. Pupils and staff across all areas of the school paraded some truly spectacular book themed costumes – probably the best we have ever seen.

We enjoyed a delicious themed lunch before the annual World Book Day Quiz took place in the library. Six teams of pupils and staff demonstrated their literary knowledge during five rounds of fiendish questions, hoping they chose the right moments to play their jokers and their “ask a teacher” cards. It was a hard-fought contest, but the winners were team Derse, comprising Elfrieda, Scarlett, Rosie, Esme and Darci.

Georgia and Elfrieda, the Library Prefects, had a very hard job choosing winners from all the amazing costumes this year. However, after much debate the winners were:

LIII – Aggie as Camikazi
UIII – Daphne and Bea as Tweedledum and Tweedledee
LIV – Tomasine, Frankie and Matilda as the Three Little Pigs
UIV – Rosie as Love, Simon and Grace as Little Miss Giggles
LV – Ella as Violet B
UV – Theodora as an angel (the whole year group looked brilliant dressed as characters from the Bible)
LVI – Mima as Ponyboy Curtis
UVI – Louisa and Cicely as Jeeves and Wooster

The staff prize this year goes to the Weasley twins, Miss Connolly and Mrs Cheadle.
