Book Week at Deni Christian School
There was one more reason to celebrate at Deniliquin Christian School this week.
Not only were students and teachers allowed to return to class for the last week of Quarter 3, the delayed Book Week celebrations could also take place.
The week – which encourages children to delve into literature – was scheduled to run from August 21-27, when schools were operating at a lower capacity due to NSW lockdown rules.
On Wednesday, students and teachers donned various costumes depicting their favorite literary characters.
Mary Poppins was a popular choice among teachers, while students preferred King Arthur, Where’s Wally, vikings, princesses, pirates, vampires, and witches.
The school day began with a parade during the normal morning assembly, where a jury of teachers selected two winners from each stage group.
The students then had the chance to vote for the best dressed teacher, with Lucy Pevensie’s portrayal of Jemma Keast from The Chronicles of Narnia winning out over the younger ones.
A book fair was also held during the day and teacher Carolyn Murphy offered a reading of Aliens Love Underpants during the lunch break.
She even came dressed as one of the underwear loving characters from the picture book.
