Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

St Pius X School re­cently held a Mon­ster Book Fair and it wasn’t just the amount of books that gave the event its ti­tle. The whole school, in­clud­ing staff, chil­dren and some par­ents, dressed up as mon­sters. Prizes were awarded to the most cre­ative cos­tumes and the fun­ni­est and a lot of time and ef­fort had ob­vi­ously gone into all of the cre­ations, prin­ci­pal Jane Red­dish said. Tea, cof­fee and a muf­fin were pro­vided to all while brows­ing the books on sale. The school sold $1600 worth of books which meant, once the cost of the event were cov­ered, it was able to buy $480 worth of books for the school li­brary. The book fair has be­come a yearly event for par­ents and grand­par­ents to buy books for their chil­dren and grand­chil­dren. The com­mu­nity sup­port the fair and re­ally get into the spirit of it, Red­dish said. ‘‘Ev­ery­one en­joyed the pa­rade of cos­tumes.’’
