Wally, all of us at school love you Sirius-ly
It was not hard to find Wally in the schoolyard of Sirius College on Tuesday where students were celebrating Literacy Week with a fun dress-up day based on the popular book Where’s Wally?
The dress-up day is only one of the activities taking place this week to encourage reading among students.
‘‘Students have had to carry books on them when walking around the school and have to be ready to Drop Everything And Read when a certain song is played on the school intercom,’’ teacher Tarbinder Pandher said.
The school is also having a scavenger hunt where students have to figure out the literacy-based clues to find items. Shepparton Library staff will run some fun activities at school.
The team organising the activities were teachers Venhar Avut, Funda Avan and Ms Pandher.
Finding their strips: Prep students Ajwa Ali and Aleena Chkhaydem and Year 2 student Fatima Hameed enjoy dressing up.
Hats off: Awwab Shaikh, Year 1, and Year 5 students Diya Qambari, Ayshanur Sheriff and Mahdi Almousawy dressed up in their favourite Wally characters.
Turning pages: Author R. L. Stine’s books are popular among students at Sirius College.
In character: Sirius College’s Awwab Shaikh, Year 1, dressed as Wally for Literacy Week.
