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.
Biboohra State School students Ryder Allison, who dressed as a werewolf and Emily Poole, dressed as Little Red Riding Hood were both excited to dress up for Book Week..
