Colour­ful char­ac­ters a plenty at St Marys NS

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

IT was a crazy and colour­ful day at St Mary’s Na­tional School as the stu­dents cel­e­brated World Book Day in style. On the day, the pupils were en­cour­aged to use their imag­i­na­tions and dress up as char­ac­ters from their favourite books which they had read dur­ing the year.

What re­sulted was a school full of crazy char­ac­ters from The Mad Hat­ter and fu­tur­is­tic ro­bots, to rugged rugby play­ers, beau­ti­ful bal­leri­nas, wicked wolves and mar­vel­lous ma­gi­cians. Plenty of imag­i­na­tion was shown by the pupils and their par­ents and it made for an in­ter­est­ing day in school, as you’d never know who (or what!) you’d end up sat be­side!

All of the fun wasn’t just for the stu­dents ei­ther. The teach­ers played their part and also put great ef­fort into their cos­tumes. A great day was had by all and Act­ing Prin­ci­pal Gil­lian Wil­son thanked the pupils and their par­ents for en­ter­ing into the spirit of things with some won­der­ful cos­tumes.

The whole idea behind the day was to fos­ter a greater love of read­ing among the chil­dren and they were all cer­tainly ex­cited to dress up as char­ac­ters from their favourite books.
