Gloucester Public School students love reading so much they’ve dressed up as their favourite storybook characters.
In a tradition that has been going on as long as some of the teachers can remember, the school celebrated Book Week 2018 in style.
With this year’s theme, “Reading is out of this world”, students and teachers dressed up in a wide range of characters from the Little Miss and Mister series, to a selection of Harry Potter characters.
The day consisted of a book fair and the infamous parade, where the students (and teachers) present their costumes to the family and friends who have gathered at the school for the occasion.
GPS teachers have once again pulled out all the stops, putting a lot of time, effort and care into their costumes.
With one of the family members watching the parade commenting, “I think the teachers enjoy dressing up more than the children.”
After skipping the parade last year, only holding the book fair, it was the first time the year one students and of course, the kindergartners took part in the big event.
Parading in a circle under the school’s new COLA (covered outdoor learning area), the students made a big impression on the cheering crowd.
Many students, and most of the teachers, walked the parade in character.
Also joining the crowd to watch speculate were many of the students and teachers from Gloucester pre schools.
