World Book Day

World Book Day is a yearly event on April 23rd, organised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization(UNESCO), to promote reading, publishing and copyright.It is the most significant 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.

In 1995 UNESCO decided that the World Book and Copyright Day would be celebrated on 23 April, as the date is also the anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, as well as that of the birth or death of several other prominent authors.

At Zebar,We celebrated World Book Day by focusing on different authors and reading from a variety of books. The children of grade 8 took part in various fun and creative reading and writing opportunities to promote a love of books and reading not just for pleasure but also for a purpose. Children read not only with their classmates but with children in different classes. They were given an opportunity to share and read various books.
