We really enjoy celebrating World Book Day at Hathersage St. Michael's School. The School Council organised lots of fun activities across the school including: a very competitive, 'Decorate Your Door' competition, a published illustrator came to school to share her drawings and members of the Governing Board came to share their favourite books with the children.
