Book parade held to celebrate Book Week
Ettalong Public School will hold a book parade to celebrate Book Week at 9am on Friday, August 26.
It will be held in the Years 3-6 playground for all students from Years K to 6.
Students will parade dressed as a book character of their choice.
"Students should bring their chosen book with them on the day," said relieving principal Ms Jodie Campbell.
"The official theme across Australia is Dreaming with Open Eyes.
"Parents are welcome to stay and watch the parade, subject to Covid restrictions at the time, but there will be no access to classrooms.
"Students may choose to dress as any appropriate book character.
"Characters from movies are not permitted unless it was a novel first eg Harry Potter or Bad Guys.
"It is not a competition, have a look around the house and get creative with what you already have.
"Students must have enclosed footwear and a hat for recess and lunch.
"Students are allowed to wear their costume all day.
"However, they can also wear their school uniform underneath and change after the parade.
"Some students have sport on Fridays so school uniform may be easier after the parade."
