WBD is a celebration! It’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
This is the 20th year there’s been a World Book Day and today (2nd March 2017) children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily.
The TEA Project creates 'Penship' Partners between school children in the UK and pupils within our Sri Lankan School Support Network. This morning TEA's Senior Project Worker received letters from school children in Scotland which will be passed to their partner school in Sri Lanka.
Do you remember the feeling of receiving a letter through the mail? The advancement of modern technology means this incredibly special experience is now mostly denied. The TEA Project engages to reintroduce this empowering feeling; an emotional, creative and educational exchange that has the possibility of building friendships that can span cultural divides and the passing of years.
Have a great day wherever you are celebrating.
