Dare to be different
Book characters leapt off the pages and into Tawa School last week, as pupils dressed up for the culmination of Book Week.
The school hall filled with pirates, tigers, dragons, fairies and even a washing machine for the school’s annual Book Character Parade.
Nivadah Ruru, 10, was a hit, dressing as comic book character Wonder Woman. ‘‘I wanted to be different,’’ he said.
It felt awesome to wear a dress to school and his friends all approved, Nivadah said.
