Central Otago Mirror - - CONVERSATIONS -

St Joseph’s School is gear­ing up for a Book Fair with plenty of bar­gains and fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties.

School prin­ci­pal Trisch In­der said there would books for all ages and gen­res at the an­nual fair on May 21.

This year fair-go­ers will be able to buy bags of books for be­tween $3 and $10.

School spokesman Piet Van Asch, 12, said to fill a bag with books was a good bar­gain.

‘‘We started slowly ex­per­i­ment­ing and hope­fully it works out,’’ he said.

Stu­dents and par­ents were putting hard work into the an­nual book fair.

Last year the school raised $26,000 dur­ing the book fair event, and is aim­ing to meet or beat the amount this time.

‘‘What we use it for is to make sure the chil­dren have re­sources,’’ In­der said.

A sausage siz­zle, bak­ing, ac­tiv­i­ties and en­ter­tain­ment will be on of­fer at the school event.

Wa­ter bal­loon chaos, a win­ning wheel, and a haunted house were among stu­dents’ favourite stalls at the fair, Van Asch said.

‘‘The haunted house is ut­terly amaz­ing, ev­ery­one comes to it,’’ he said.

Some chil­dren will dress up as book char­ac­ters for the fair.

In­der said rain or shine, the fair will go ahead.
