Elmhurst School for Boys

We have not just celebrated World Book Day, we have had World Book Week!

Boys have picked their favourite authors and stories, teachers have done the same and if you were to have visited the school today you would think the boys had only just got out of bed! Pyjamas of all shapes and sizes have been the order of the day, perfect for settling down and reading a good book.

My particular highlight was the opportunity to share two of my favourite book with the boys in our Wednesday assembly. My choices were “Treasure Island” and “Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone”. The connection? The first book my father read to me when I was a child and the Harry Potter books I read to my children when they were little.

I thought I had done a great job describing in chilling tones the appearance of Blind Pew, however I have to bow to Mr Cater who then introduced the boys to the opening of Roald Dahl’s “The Witches”. He held the boys mesmerised as the pages unfolded, a great performance!

It has been great to see the boys so excited about reading, my thanks to all the staff for making this so successful in particular to Miss Frois for all her hard work this week in bringing books to life!
