World Book Day – Thursday 2nd March

February 2023

Dear Parent/Carer,

RE: World Book Day – Thursday 2nd March

I wanted to take this opportunity to write to you about World Book Day, which we will be celebrating across the week beginning Monday 27th February.

At BBA we recognise the huge value and importance of reading. Not only can reading support students’ Academic success, but regular reading has a host of other intellectual, personal, and social benefits.

The goal of World Book Day is to promote reading and encourage conversations about reading. This year, there are a range of ways students can get involved. Every student will also receive a book token which can be exchanged for any of this year’s £1 books or used to receive £1 off any other book of their choice.

This year, the book voucher is electronic and can be redeemed when displayed to the retailer on an electronic device. Printed copies of the voucher are also available at reception and in the school library.

We will also be running a charity book sale during this week, and I would like to ask for your support in making this a success.

Firstly, if you have any books in a reasonably good condition that you no longer want, please send them into school with your child. We will be collecting books every day this week. These can be either children’s or adult books and every book handed in will earn a raffle ticket for a £20 Amazon Voucher.

All the books we collect will then be used in our charity book sale for staff and students during breaktimes on the week commencing 27th February.

All of the money raised will be donated to a good cause, though the main goal of the event is not necessarily to raise money, but to find good homes for our used and unwanted books.

Please encourage your child to come into the Academy with some spare change during this week to buy books for themselves, or as a gift.

Yours sincerely
