To celebrate the culmination of Children’s Book Week, we are again holding our
Whole School Dress-Up Day & Parade on FRIDAY 1st SEPTEMBER, 2017 (Week 7)
for all students (and staff) from PP to Year 6.
Children can dress up as either a character from a book they know OR as the book itself OR they can wear a costume that relates to this year’s Book Week theme of “Escape to Everywhere.” This is a very open-ended theme, so let your imagination run wild. Reading is a great escape!
We ask that students bring their chosen book with them (or borrow it from the Library), to show the relationship between their costume and their book. We encourage creativity and originality. Home-made costumes are perfect, as the fun is in the process of creating with your child, rather than the end product. (No need to purchase or hire expensive costumes.)
Two parades will be held on the quadrangle outside the Undercover Area (weather permitting) on
FRIDAY 1st SEPTEMBER, for students to share their costumes and books with the school community:
- Junior Parade PP, Yr 1, Yr 2 @ 9.15 – 9.45am
- Senior Parade Yr 3, Yr 4, Yr 5 @ 10.15 – 10.45am
Parents are welcome to attend this event. Please contact Mrs Murray in the Library on 9302 4100 if you have any questions about the
Book Week Dress-Up Day & Parade.
Thank you for your participation. We look forward to seeing everyone dressed up and enjoying themselves on FRIDAY 1st SEPTEMBER.
Happy Book Week!
