Celebrating World Book Day at SMSIS

In its drive to raise awareness on the importance of books for children, Seri Mulia Sarjana International School celebrated World Book Day on 27th April 2017.

The celebration began with a general assembly held at the school’s waiting area. There was a parade of literary characters as students and teachers gathered at the school grounds dressed up in their colourful costumes. An enlightening talk motivated the learners to love and appreciate books.

There were many engaging activities for the students to fuel their interest in reading not only on this day but for the whole year round.

The kiddos in the Preschool Department eagerly listened to the story telling facilitated by their teachers. The Year 1 and 2 students enjoyed making a mini book, Year 3 and 4 students happily shared their stories with their classmates, and Year 5 and 6 students went on a book-related scavenger hunt.

The engaged learners had fun doing all the activities and talked about their own experiences with one another. The participants in the scavenger hunt were given bookmarks with quotes to remind them of how important reading is.

When asked what she observed during the event, Teacher Joanna said, “I’m glad that the students had fun and I hope this day rose awareness of how important books are.”

It was truly a great day for everyone, as the World Book Day activities had been a fun way of showing the students how significant reading is in their lives.

With the school’s constantly endorsing the importance of reading, students will surely find a better appreciation of books.
