Find­ing trea­sure at Chairo

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - DROUIN THE PLACE TO LIVE... -

Find Your Trea­sure was the theme of Book Week ac­tiv­i­ties at Chairo Chris­tian School.

Stu­dents in grades prep to year four dressed up as their favourite book char­ac­ters for a spe­cial pa­rade.

Many stu­dents came ready to go ex­plor­ing to find their trea­sure, com­plete with mag­ni­fy­ing glasses or binoc­u­lars, while oth­ers dressed as a favourite book char­ac­ter or some­one from a story they trea­sure.

With ex­cel­lent sup­port from par­ents, sib­lings and grand­par­ents, the stu­dents thor­oughly en­joyed the fun and cre­ativ­ity that are al­ways fea­tures of Book Week.

This an­nual Chil­dren’s Book Coun­cil of Aus­tralia ini­tia­tive aims to en­gage young peo­ple to read Aus­tralian lit­er­a­ture.

A high­light of Chairo’s pa­rade was a per­for­mance by staff mem­bers, who bravely went on a bear hunt and dis­cov­ered a trea­sure chest full of books.

Chairo Chris­tian School teach­ers move through the “thick oozy mud” dur­ing a hunt for trea­sure which was one of the Book Week ac­tiv­i­ties.
