Don't Judge a Book by its Cover


The St Veronica's children enjoyed taking part in the 'Don't Judge a Book by its Cover', which was organised as part of our aim to promote reading as a lifelong skill for all the children at our school.  The children were invited into the school hall to choose a book, which they then unwrapped and spent time sharing and showing their friends.  So let's get reading and sharing those books!
