Colour­ful char­ac­ters abounded at Nagam­bie Pri­mary School’s Book Week cel­e­bra­tions re­cently.

Mod­ern and old favourite book char­ac­ters, rang­ing from Alice in Won­der­land to Willy Wonka, were brought to life at the school’s Book Week pa­rade.

Con­grat­u­la­tions must go to the par­ents and grand­par­ents who had gone to so much trou­ble to help the school chil­dren cre­ate their fan­tasy char­ac­ters. The imag­i­na­tion ran wild watch­ing all the colour­ful cos­tumes.

There were armed su­per­heroes, pi­rates, fairy­tale cos­tumes, Dr Seuss char­ac­ters, princesses, pan­das, an­gels, demons, Trans­form­ers, Lego men and a Mad Hat­ter, while tele­vi­sion and movie char­ac­ters also fea­tured in the school pav­il­ion.

The chil­dren pa­raded their cos­tumes in front of teach­ers and fam­i­lies and were judged for best dressed in each of the grades.

The teach­ers also got into the fun of the day and dressed in an­i­mal cos­tumes to join in the Book Week cel­e­bra­tion and acted out an adapted ver­sion of The Jun­gle Book.
