School dresses up for Book Week
Remarkables Primary School was filled with Harry Potter characters, pirates, and fairies on Friday as the students and staff dressed up as book characters to mark the end of Book Week at the school.
Principal Debbie Dickson, who dressed as Clifford the Big Red Dog for the day, said Book Week was an annual event for the school and was held to celebrate literature.
This year the school also focused on developing writing skills.
Special guests also took part including children’s author Brian Falkner, illustrator Bruce Potter and Kyle and Marion Mewburn.
Falkner also helped select the best-dressed students after a lunchtime parade on Friday.
Throughout the week the students learnt how authors work, had doodling sessions, took part in slogan writing competitions and held share a book with your buddy day.
A book fair was also held.
