We support Ripley school's World Book Day celebrations

World Book Day celebrations at Ripley Court School were boosted by a book voucher donation from our South Thames team.

Supporting our communities

The Surrey school received a £200 voucher as part of our support of the national event, which took place on Thursday 7th March.

Pupils and staff at the school celebrated the 26th edition of World Book Day by dressing up as their favourite book characters.

World Book Day promotes reading for pleasure, whilst aiming to provide every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.

Sophie Dudley, Head of English at Ripley Court School said: “We always look forward to celebrating World Book Day at Ripley Court School; it’s a fantastic initiative that encourages children to pick up a book and get reading. The children had a wonderful time dressing up and Taylor Wimpey’s kind donation has helped ensure they have many new books to enjoy.”

Mary O'Brien, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey South Thames, said: “World Book Day is a wonderful annual celebration that we’re always proud to support. The pupils at Ripley Court School looked fantastic in their costumes and we hope our donation helps provide brand new books for current and future generations to use.”
