Cos­tumes help make Book Week fun

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

STUDETNS dressed as book charatcers made an ap­pearence at Bi­boohra State School on Mon­day to en­couage stu­dents to get in­volved in Book Week.

Stu­dents from Prep to year 6 en­joyed the chance to dress up for the day and learn more about books.

The school’s li­brary was dec­o­rated for the week with the Book Week theme Es­cape to Else­where as well as hav­ing a magic car­pet for kids to sit on and read.

Bi­boohra State School prin­ci­pal David King said Book Week draws a fo­cus on school li­braries and read­ing.

“This week is about draw­ing out the en­joy­ment and plea­sure stu­dents get from read­ing,” he said.

“School and read­ing is about learn­ing but it also needs to be a bit of fun and it is great to see the par­ents get into the spirit it as well.”

The school had a pa­rade for stu­dents to show off their cos­tumes and cake to cel­e­brate Book Week.

Kids were also en­cour­aged to read. When a stu­dent was caught read­ing they were given an egg to put their name on and it would go into a draw to win a prize.
