Book Characters come to life

On 2nd March 2017 and World Book Day has come around at Tonbridge Grammar School. 

This year we have gone all out! From Gangster Granny to Professor Trelawney! There were a variety of colourful costumes from the staff as well as the students.

First prize went to Daisy Blanchard who came as ‘The Tiger who Came to Tea’, other strong contenders included The Queen of Hearts, The White Rabbit, The Mad-hatter and a dictionary.

World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading, marked in over 100 countries all over the world. At Tonbridge Grammar School staff and students also helped to fundraise for the Y12 humanitarian project in Malawi.


Prior to the event, the Malawi team published information on the day on our school plasma screens, through news letters that were sent home and spoke individually with learning communities to inspire our students tom participate.

They didn’t disappoint!

In one hour, the team had collected £1003! Every penny will go towards Joshua Orphan and Community Care  it also continues to spread the word about the children and families in Malawi.  

Something to think about, it costs just £1 to feed a child for a month in Malawi. Thank you all so much.
