“Awesome!”, said one of the Regent’s students, about the largest, ‘World Book Day’ celebration in the history of The Regent’s International School, Bangkok. If you were looking for a peaceful and calm event, this World Book Day celebration was not for you; for every second of the event, your attention was demanded by the many activities the Y12 students devised for you.
The choice of books characters that the students and teachers chose to be dressed as was splendid and remarkable; from a Psychopathic Murderer, Patrick Bateman from ‘American Psycho,’ to the Queen of Hearts and Mad Hatter from ‘Alice in the Wonderland’, to the Luch Lady Superhero. And since we put in all of our effort, there was a reward, for everyone to enjoy; the spectacular Fashion Show that filled the secondary building with joy and laughter. All of our memories were captured by our photo booth team, so we can enjoy the moment forever.
Despite all the fun and excitement of the day, the Treasure Hunt, Thai authors and Book Log, the World Book Day celebration is more meaningful than that. Generally, it is a celebration of authors, illustrators, and books around the world, but it is also a day that reminds everyone to appreciate reading and literature. Especially in this modern age, when people grows fond of new types of media, and less fond of the old, classical type of media; books. Overall, it was an amazing day for all of us, the funds raised are being donated to the Free School Foundation in Thailand so we can help others learn to read and share the joy of literature.
