Euroa Primary takes Book Week to the streets
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.”
