423 World Book Day Highlight


About 423 World Book Day

April 23 is chosen as the World Book Day by UNESCO General Conference in 1995 to encourage reading and publishing, and to promote the protection of intellectual property. April 23 is chosen because this is a special day in the literature arena. William Shakespeare, the great poet, died on 23 April 1616. In addition, many famous authors such as Maurice Duron, K. Laxness, Vladimir Nabokov, Josep Pla and Manuel Mejia Vallejo were born or died on this day.


To celebrate the World Book Day and Inaugural Hong Kong Reading for All Day, various activities from 22nd April to 26th April are organized in our School. There were Story Telling, Reading for Integrity, Book Swap, Subject talk on Hong Kong Public Libraries Electronic Resources by Tung Chung Public Library and One Hour Reading. We also joined the ‘English We Can’ Reading workshop in Wong Cho Bau Secondary School.
