On Thursday 2nd March 2017, TJHS celebrated World Book Day in style. Prior to the day, the English Department held an Extreme Reading House Competition where they received all types of weird and wonderful photographs of pupils and staff reading in strange places. On the day, we took part in the DEAR challenge where the whole school Dropped Everything And Read at certain points during the day, no matter where they were. To top it all off, we had a bit of fun and laughter when some crazy teachers came to school dressed as book characters. As a treat they got to enjoy a Mad Hatter’s tea party at break time. Overall, it was very successful and a substantial amount of money was raised for the Library by pupils donating £1 for a non-uniform day.
