Book Week Parade was ‘outstanding’ community effort

Pretty Beach Public School principal Ms Karen Wardlaw has described the school’s book fair and Book Week Parade as “an outstanding effort from our whole community”.
“It was fantastic to see so many students and teachers dressing up as our favourite book characters.
“We enjoyed a short parade out in the morning sunshine, with each class showing off their wonderful costumes and wonderful personalities.
“We very much appreciated all the family time, encouragement and support that went into finding or making costumes: what an outstanding effort from our whole community.
“It really felt like a fun day and, even after the parade was over, it was such a treat to see our students at lunch playing soccer dressed as their favourite characters.
“There was a lovely celebratory feel to the day.”
School librarian Ms Kassandra Bulman described the parade as “a wonderful success with some very creative costumes”.
“Students celebrated our love of learning and reading in style.”
She said the book fair was a fundraiser for the school.
“The students’ purchases from the book fair have enabled us to buy more books for the library.
“As the book fair is now closed, library borrowing will resume on normal library days.”
