Book char­ac­ters turn out in force

Geraldton Guardian - - News -

Ger­ald­ton’s schoolchil­dren donned the trade­mark out­fits of their favourite lit­er­ary, film, tele­vi­sion show and com­puter game char­ac­ters in cel­e­bra­tion of Book Week last week, with clear favourites in­clud­ing Stormtroop­ers, Harry Pot­ter, the Cat in the Hat and Minecraft zom­bies.

Par­ent cre­ativ­ity was un­leashed with pa­per mache, card­board cutouts, face paint and funky de­signs, bring­ing to life both time­less and con­tem­po­rary novel and screen char­ac­ters.

Staff par­tic­i­pated in the fun too, ar­riv­ing at schools dressed in out­fits such as Shrek’s ogre wife Fiona, Ursula from The Lit­tle Mer­maid and Gan­dalf from The Lord of the Rings.

Take a look at how the lo­cal pri­mary school stu­dents cel­e­brated Book Week.
