A Book Week Character Parade involving our Infant/Junior school has been planned for Friday, August 24.
For the Infants (Prep –Yr 2) the costume parade will begin at 8:55am in the PA Centre and for the Junior classes (Yr 3-6) the costume parade will be held in the same venue directly after, at 9:50am.
We would encourage all students to come dressed as their favourite book character. As this is a fundraising event for our Resource Centre, students need to bring a gold coin donation. No prizes will be awarded for the costumes as the book character parade will be held just for fun. Those who are not able to come dressed as a book character, but still wish to support the event, may come dressed in mufti clothing and the same gold coin donation will apply.
Please remember that the event is for book characters, not comic characters such as super heroes. In the past we have had some students arrive at school dressed as super heroes and, unfortunately, their actions on the day have emulated these characters. For this reason we would strongly discourage this.
We would also like to uphold the Christian ethos of our school, by reminding you that supernatural themes such as ghosts, witches, Harry Potter type characters, etc would not be acceptable.
There are however hundreds of book characters the students could come dressed as and we would encourage students and parents to be creative in their efforts. Students who wish to bring along the book about their character are encouraged to do so and the teachers will be able to care for these books until the time of the parade if needed.
Thank you for your support of this event and for keeping in mind the Christian character of our school as you plan your costumes.
During the week we will also be hosting a “Library Book Sale” with deleted books being available for a gold coin donation. Students can select their books during class Library time or before/after school. All monies raised will go towards purchasing more lovely books for the students to enjoy in our Library.
