Shepparton News - - NEWS - By De­clan Martin

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.
