Book Week pa­rade at St John’s

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

BOOK Week 2017 was cel­e­brated en­thu­si­as­ti­cally at St John’s last week, cul­mi­nat­ing in an ex­tra­or­di­nary pa­rade in the school’s multi pur­pose Mercy Cen­tre.

With this year’s Book Week theme “Es­cape to Ev­ery­where” be­ing such a broad con­cept, the stu­dents and their fam­i­lies al­lowed their imag­i­na­tions to run wild, pre­par­ing cos­tumes that were ex­trav­a­gant, cre­ative and very clever.

Af­ter the pa­rade, the stu­dents split into the three house groups and moved around to a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to fur­ther pro­mote a love of lit­er­a­ture, read­ing and books.

At the end of the day there were 200 tired, but ex­tremely happy stu­dents who will re­mem­ber the events of Book Week 2017 for a very long time to come.
