Bolton School Junior Girls

World Book Day 2016

The theme at Hesketh House for World Book Day 2016 was 'Magic and Fantasy' and the girls did their best to bring a little magic with them into School in the form of costumes representing their favourite book characters! There were also lots of themed activities to promote the love of reading and literature throughout the day.
