Students from Cambridge Primary School dressed as their favourite book characters for a parade through town last Friday, marking the culmination of the school’s Book Week celebrations.
An annual event, this year’s theme was “celebrating culture and customs” and students were encouraged to dress up in outfits that reflected the theme.
There were cowboys, superheroes, several Santas and princesses from western, Indian and Chinese cultures.
Many children stuck with their favourite book characters, including a few Dr Seuss personalities, Harry Potter characters and even a Smurf.
“We are blown away at the efforts that our kids have put into creating their fantastic costumes,” said Cambridge Primary School teacher Hayley Elvines.
“It’s been a fun filled week around here, with a visiting author, Grandparents/Special Friends Day, and today’s dress up day and parade.”
The school wished to thank the Cambridge Library, as well as staff, children and their families for helping to make the special week such a success.
