Schools across Kincardine and Mearns got involved with World Book day last week as pupils and teachers dressed as their favourite characters.

We have pictures from Mill O’Forest, Fettercairn, Dunnottar and Lairhillock schools.

There were lots of different events throughout the schools with some having a book drive, where people donated their unwanted books to help others, or book swaps where pupils brought in a book and left with another book.

World Book Day was designated by UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. A main aim of World Book Day in the UK is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.
