Fic­tional fan­tasy day

Kapi-Mana News - - EDUCATION -

Tawa School held a cel­e­bra­tion of all things book­ish on June 3.

Stu­dents were en­cour­aged to dress up for a pa­rade as a char­ac­ter from a book – Cap­tain Un­der­pants was joined by princesses, scare­crows, and pi­rates – and a trea­sure hunt was held.

‘‘We ran events all week; the teach­ers read a story to dif­fer­ent classes once a day and there was a show on Wed­nes­day,’’ school librarian An­gela Marsden said.

‘‘The pa­rade went down re­ally well. There was a lot of orig­i­nal thought that went into the cos­tumes, and the teach­ers got into it as well.’’
