Euroa Pri­mary takes Book Week to the streets

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

STAFF and stu­dents from Euroa Pri­mary School cel­e­brated Book Week 2017 fam­i­lies at the school be­fore tak­ing to the streets to share their love of books and read­ing with the wider com­mu­nity.

The 2017 theme, “Es­cape to Ev­ery­where”, saw classes delve into the won­der­ful world of lit­er­a­ture through their five texts, The Very Hun­gry Cater­pil­lar, The Fan­tas­tic Fly­ing Books of Mr. Mor­ris Less­more, Feath­ers for Phoebe, The Lost Thing and The Won­der­ful Wizard of Oz.

The school’s an­nual pa­rade saw class book ban­ners be­ing un­furled and stu­dents pa­raded with magnificent cos­tumes. The pa­rade, com­pared by prin­ci­pal Ross Davis, re­splen­dent in his Oompa Loompa Cos­tume, also saw class rep­re­sen­ta­tives read sum­maries of var­i­ous books.

Fol­low­ing the pa­rade, classes ven­tured around town, proudly show­ing their de­pic­tions. Stu­dents vis­ited the Kinder­garten, Good Start, Euroa Sec­ondary Col­lege, Bin­ney Street and Gran­iteHill.

Prin­ci­pal Ross Davis said it was a bril­liant day.

“The par­ents, grand­par­ents and fam­i­lies at the school were amazed at the passion, en­thu­si­asm and ex­cite­ment shown by our staff and stu­dents,” he said.

“To then take the pa­rade through­out the com­mu­nity was a real buzz.

“The mes­sages of sup­port and con­grat­u­la­tions from com­mu­nity mem­bers was sen­sa­tional and some­thing our school is very proud of.”
