KAA Literary Festival 2019
KAA is a school that loves to read, so World Book Day is a week long celebration. On the week beginning 4th March, KAA’s annual Literary Festival will be returning. All week there will be famous authors visiting and competitions and activities running in the library every day.
All students will be given a £1 World Book Day token during Morning Reading/Prep. These can be redeemed at all high street book stores in exchange for the World Book Day special edition books, or used as a £1 voucher towards the price of any book!
