Bute House’s Alice in Wonderland Themed World Book Day
Bute House Prep School celebrates World Book Day with an Alice in Wonderland themed dress up day.
8th May 2015 — On Friday 24th April Bute House celebrated World Book Day with an Alice in Wonderland inspired fancy dress day. The girls dressed as a character from Alice in Wonderland to celebrate 150 years since this great classic was first published. Costumes ranged from traditional Alices to Mad Hatters, Magic Water Bottles, Teapots and The Queen of Hearts.
The day began with an inspired performance of Alice in Wonderland by the staff with Mrs Lowe, the Headmistress, playing the Duchess. The girls enjoyed seeing their teachers on stage and the laughs could be heard around the school.
A potato decorating competition was held where girls were asked to create a book character from a large baking potato. Characters included Black Beauty, Mr Bump, Winnie the Pooh, Rapunzel, Queen Malice and the Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Staff 'shelfies' (pictures of staff bookshelves) were taken and displayed so the girls could then try to match the 'shelfie' photo with the correct teacher.
Everyone had a fantastic day and the girls are now waiting patiently to see if their costume or potato has won a prize; this will be announced in the end of term assembly.
