The excitement was palpable. The parade was about to start. Onlookers cheered and clapped as colourful book character look-alikes strutted, shuffled and danced their way around the quadrangle. This was the culminating event for Book Week 2021 at Margaret River Primary, and it was a joyous one too!
‘Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds’ was the theme. Students were really creative and showed their wide knowledge of literary characters through their costumes, most carrying their chosen book in their hands, as a mirror into those other worlds.
Enjoy the atmosphere and joy of the day in these photos and video clip – and you may even be inspired to lose yourself in the world of your own book too.
