THIS week at Ba­nana State School, the P&C has been con­duct­ing Book Fair each day in the school li­brary.

This an­nual event is highly an­tic­i­pated by stu­dents and adults who use it as an op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase qual­ity gifts for young read­ers.

The Ba­nana P&C buys a book from Book Fair for each stu­dent which is pre­sented on Awards Day.

This has been a long stand­ing tra­di­tion at Ba­nana State School.

Each stu­dent was given the op­por­tu­nity on Mon­day to come to school dressed as their favourite book char­ac­ter.

The P&C pre­sented three prizes, $20 vouch­ers to spend at Book Fair.

The win­ners were William Kurtz, alias Lego Man, McKen­non Ha­ley and Ty Mur­ray from King of the Cowboys and Mia Urquhart who dressed as Hermione from the Harry Pot­ter se­ries.

Every­one at Ba­nana State School val­ues the Book Fair weeks as the pro­ceeds pro­vide more books for our li­brary.

All chil­dren who visit Book Fair are en­cour­aged to read new books as part of their ev­ery­day rou­tine.

At Ba­nana State School we’re all about stu­dent improve­ment and read­ing is the key to un­lock­ing aca­demic growth at ev­ery year level in ev­ery learn­ing area.
