World Book Day 2024

We had an absolutely fantastic day on Thursday 7th March for World Book Day! Lots of amazing outfits and creations, and our book sale was a huge success; we sold around 890 books with a fantastic total of £445.42! The funds will go to Secondary and Primary books plus a donation of £100 to the Canine Rescue Centre.. 

Thank you to everyone who donated books, we were blown away with how many we received this year. Thank you also to all of our helpers, they worked so hard to get everything ready for the book sale. We also welcomed the fabulous authors Susi Briggs and Justin Davies to Moffat Academy and Beattock Primary during the week.

World Book Day 2023

On Thursday 2nd March, Moffat Academy took part in 'The Masked Reader' as part of World Book Day celebrations. Miss Gibbon created videos of teachers reading for different age groups with added facial and vocal filters! Pupil then had to guess who the Masked Readers were. It was a great success and our young people loved taking part! Primary pupils dressed up and were encouraged to make their own outfits this year or repurpose. Secondary also took part in a tailored Masked Reader during their PSE slots and participated in a World Book Day kahoot. All staff put up posters outside their classrooms or offices, telling everyone what book they were currently reading. What a great day we had and we are still looking forward to welcoming storyteller and author Renita Boyle on Wednesday 10th March as a belated World Book Day event.
