Children's stories come to life for Book Week

STAFF, students and parents gathered at St Joseph's Primary School in Murwillumbah on Wednesday for the school's Book Week parade.

Students - and their teachers - had dressed up as their favourite literary characters.

Jayden Bourke, who dressed up as the King from Cinderella, said Book Week was a fun opportunity to get dressed up and discover new books.

"You can get to buy books and read new ones you'd never read before,” Hayden said.

His friend, Bailey Ouslinis, had dressed up as his Queen.

He said Book Week was "awesome”.

Principal Jason Clarke, who'd also dressed up, said the school were celebrating literacy all week long.

He said the Book Week fair was also an important part of the school's annual fundraising efforts.

"The whole focus of it is to celebrate a love and appreciation of literacy,” Mr Clarke said.

Mr Clarke said the celebrations went beyond reading, with students' book-inspired artworks also on display.

The students also visited Murwillumbah Library during the week.
