Students dressed as their favourite book characters as part of a celebration of reading and literacy at Tambrey Primary School in Karratha.

The dress up day, held last Wednesday, was part of Book Week, with the costumes ranging from Harry Potter to Edward Scissorhands, as children got into the spirit of the day.

A parade of costumes took place in the morning, with each class flaunting their outfits, with the best costume from each class winning an award.

Tambrey Primary School library officer Kirstin Pages said Book Week normally took place in August but was delayed because of the coronavirus crisis.

“Students have celebrated Book Week by engaging in numerous activities this year; participating in a Golden Eggs Writing Competition, a guess the book competition, enjoying staff book readings and finally participating in the much anticipated Book Week Parade,” she said.
