World Book Day 2013

Holgate celebrated the fantastic event  by having a book quiz during tutor time – in which the answers were written down as accurately and quickly as possible and then taken up to Miss Hawkins on the runway to be in with a chance of winning.
There was also a whole school competition being run all day, Reading Riddles. Lots of Book titles had been scrambled up for students to work out as they made their way around school – some classes were even given the opportunity during their lessons to have a quick look for the riddles. One student from each house will win a prize – whoever figured out the most riddles during the day.
