Book Week Character Parade

Cardboard, papier mâché, patience, plastic, paint, hair spray, make-up, glue guns, and unlimited imagination. These were some of the key ingredients for the amazing costumes created by children and families in this year’s Book Week Character Parade.

Children from Kindy through to Year 6 paraded their costumes in front of an excited crowd of students and parents, with teachers and staff joining in the fun with their own favourite children’s book character outfits. Encouraged by Gerald The Giraffe (aka Mr. Baills), there was plenty of dancing and strutting, with prizes awarded to the best dressed (by three mystery judges), from each year level.
