Celebrating World Book Day

Posted 12th March 2024

Reading is incredibly important at Dixons Newall Green, so it was important for us to celebrate books and reading because there are so many benefits to being a reader!​

Aimee, our fantastic English teacher organised a Guess Who Competition! On Thursday, morning students arrived to images up across the hall of staff members hidden behind their favorite books. It was amazing to see all students eager and determined to guess every single staff member behind the book for a chance to win the prizes.
