Posted on: 14th Mar 2019

Our Library is Buzzing!

The whole school got involved and excitement ran high in our library where students were treated to a brilliant range of costume characters and quizzes, short stories and competitions, cupcakes and book tokens.Haverstock School Camden, World Book Day 2019: Staff in costume
