Printhouse Tour for Pupils

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Following on from our World Book Day celebrations a select group of pupils from the Juniors and Seniors had a fantastic school outing to Printhouse this week. Two pupils from each Junior class were selected for showing excellence in improvement/engagement in reading as well as two seniors who contributed towards Book Day activities. All were taken out as a treat and received a full tour around Printhouse, a local printing company based at Providence.

They received a very warm welcome from all staff and saw everything from the graphic design programmes, printing plates, newspapers in print, brochures being trimmed down to size and newsletters being compiled. Pupils were eager to learn and asked many questions about where paper is imported from and where left over pieces are re-used and recycled.

Pupils also received a personalised notebook and other stationary to remember their visit. A massive thanks goes to all staff who accommodated pupils. We all had a great,

memorable time !

World Book Day 2015 was celebrated in style by hundreds of book lovers from young and old at ISS. Pupils were greeted at the gates by ‘Mr Tickle’, Beryl the Giant Penguin and with displays showing off everyone’s favourite books to celebrate our love of reading. Parents stayed to watch our mass book character parade and then came back to class to share stories and other fun activities in the classroom.
Many thanks for everyone’s enthusiasm and the many book donations we had to help replenish our libraries. The money raised will also help with additional resources for reading in school.
Watch out for more photos of our fun World Book Day 2015 … I wonder which book characters you will spot?
