Kilmore Primary School students and teachers enjoyed Book Week on Thursday, dressing up as their favourite story characters.

The entire school met in the gym for the annual parade, where each year level took turns showing their costumes, as the other year levels and teachers cheered.

In classrooms, teachers and students shared their favourite books, and went over book reviews.

Prior to Book Week, students read books in the library and voted for their favourite book for the annual event.

Grade six teacher Fiona Johnson said book week was mainly about teaching students the enjoyment of reading.

“We’re hoping to teach the kids that reading is fun, and it all suits yourself. Every child has their own character that they love and enjoy reading, and there’s a whole range of those books,” she said.

Ms Johnson said the effort parents and students went to for the event was truly significant.

“It’s awesome to see them celebrating Book Week and celebrating the reading, and they do go to an awful lot of effort for it,” Ms Johnson said.

Grade six teacher Luke Banioski said the day also gave students a chance to show their personalities and excitement.

“There’s always a bit of a buzz, everyone is excited to see what other people are doing, and like I said everyone gets to sort of flex their personality in a way, what they enjoy reading, and you see all different [costumes] and you can embrace it,” he said.
