World Book Day at HAB - Look What's Happening!
World Book Day is a pretty big deal at HAB! We dress up as our favourite characters, take part in book-themed lessons and every student is given a free book to add to their book collection at home.
Even though we are not on site to celebrate World Book Day this year, there are plenty of ways to celebrate at home.

HAB World Book Day competition video
Watch the video and see which members of HAB staff you can spot. Everyone is hiding behind a different disguise!
If you want to be in with the chance of winning a prize, make a list of everyone you spot in the video and send it to Amy.Morris@harrisbermondsey.org.uk. The first person to accurately identify all 14 members of HAB staff in the video will win a special prize.
