Iqra English School for Girls celebrated the annual Book Week from 23rd April to 27th April with a variety of activities. The week got off to a sparkling start with the enormous Book Cake cutting ceremony. The teachers and the students decorated the doors of their classrooms as the giant book covers. Selected students from different classes were given the opportunity to read a book to the Principal. Book jackets and bookmarks were made and book reports were written by the students during the library lessons. One of the highlights of the week was the Career Day with the motto, “Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader”. Students dressed up as what they want to be when they grow up and shared their thoughts and aspirations about their future. A Book Fair was also organised at school for two days, where the kids bought may books for themselves and for their families.

A great success was that Mums were called as “The Mystery Reader” to come to their daughters’ class. The week ended with The Play Day which was conducted at Al Rayyan Municipality Theatre. A large number of parents gathered to watch the mesmerizing performances by students of all year groups. Some of the plays performed were “Fancy Nancy”, “The Great Fire of London”, “A little Princess”, “Many Moons”, “The Gruffalo” and “It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny”. The Book Week certainly provided children with the love of reading, varied activities, enjoyment and expansion of knowledge
