Red Nose Day meets World Book Day at The Perse Prep
24 Mar 2021
What happens when you cross comedy clown noses with much-loved characters from children’s stories?
Answer: Plenty of colourful costumes and lots of laughter as staff and pupils at The Perse Prep doubled their fun by combining Red Nose Day and World Book Day into one event.
Children dressed up as their favourite characters and enjoyed inspiring online workshops with leading author Jennifer Bell, who wrote The Uncommoners mystery adventure series, as part of their World Book Day celebrations.
Many pupils completed their looks with a red nose to help raise funds for BBC Comic Relief appeal, while a number of staff members were given a red face paint makeover to add to the fun.
Head James Piper commented: “The children have missed much of the fun of school during home learning, so instead of dressing up for World Book Day behind a camera, we wanted to combine these two special events and mark them with a riot of colour, imagination and fun with friends and staff in school.”
