World Book Day 2017

Information regarding World Book Day 2017 at Fintry Primary on Thursday 2nd March 2017.

Dear Parent/Carer

World Book Day is a day set aside every year to celebrate reading, books, authors and illustrators.  It’s marked in more than 100 countries around the world and will be celebrated for the 20th time in 2017. The date for World Book Day 2017  in Fintry Primary is Thursday 2nd March.

To celebrate this special day at Fintry Primary we are holding a Book Swap Day. We would like the children to bring in any books they've outgrown or no longer need, (good condition please!)The children will then receive a token for each book they bring in. On Thursday 2nd March your child will then have the opportunity to swap their tokens for a new book to take home.

We are having a theme this year where we would like the children to come dressed as their favourite character from their favourite book and bring this book with them  to share with their class.

Our Primary 7's will be helping on the day.  All we ask is that all books are handed into the school by Wednesday 1st  March to give our pupils time to have everything set out.

Many Thanks

Ms B Webster

Depute Head Teacher
