World Book Day - 4 March 2021
World Book Day is every English teacher's favourite day of the year. Because our boys tend to have multiple outfit changes on a normal day, we don't tend to go in for costumes here at Merchiston. Instead, we make an extra special effort - at school, at home, and, this year, on Zoom - to talk about books, and to share stories.
Excitement about sharing stories is not limited to the English Department, though. Below, we have more members of the community sharing stories that matter to us. And we have the opportunity for you to enter a competition - with a prize awarded from our community partners The Edinburgh Bookshop. To enter, all you have to do is try and correctly identify which book we are each reading from. You can enter your guesses via the quiz link (don’t worry: it’s multiple choice!). There are some great reading recommendations there too.
