ST MARY’S students love to read.
They don’t mind dressing up either, which turned out to be a good thing last Thursday, when the school held its annual book fair and open day.
The school threw open its doors to celebrate and promote the love of reading.
Parents and grandparents visited the classroom and students had the opportunity to share their learning with them.
A book fair was a feature of the day, with students and families able to purchase from the wide range of quality books on display.
On the day staff and students dressed as a book character.
The whole school character parade was a highlight of the day.
A special grandparent’s morning tea was also held and families and friends gathered for a sausage sizzle lunch.
St Mary’s teacher/librarian Jodie Maginnity was extremely pleased with the enthusiastic support for book fair and thanked everyone involved for their support on the day.
