With Education Week just around the corner, Hanwood Public School students took part in a book parade unlike any other before it.
Held to coincide with the schools annual Book Fair, students dressed up as their favourite make believe characters from books and comics, showcasing their creativity in their parade costumes by personifying superhero's, princesses, animals and more.
Classroom teachers even joined in on the fun with their students!
However this year, the book parade took place a little differently.
"Historically we have a school full of parents, extended family and community members attend" Hanwood Public School Principle, Monica St Baker said.
"Unfortunately this was not possible this year due to current COVID-19 restrictions."
As a result, parents and family members were invited to attend the book parade virtually by visiting the Hanwood Public School Facebook page and watching the children in the costumes in a livestream.
"Our annual book parade is an event the whole school supports - students, teachers, and staff alike" Mrs St Baker said.
"It is a fun day that we all look forward to.
Thankyou to our parents who once again supported our 2021 Book Fair and Parade."
