Book Week a big success story

FRASER Coast Anglican College’s Book Week activities culminated in a parade yesterday with students from the Junior School dressed up as characters from their favourite books.

Not only did students dress up, but many of the College staff also donned costumes including the King and Queen of Hearts and the grandma from the series Stories from Grandma’s Attic.

The theme this year was the Story Bridge and prizes were presented to the best dressed and the winners of other competition categories such as design a cover and classrooms decoration.

Funds raised by the college from its annual Book Fair were donated to the Indigenous Literacy Program, a partnership between the Australian Book Industry and the Fred Hollows Foundation, working together to address the literacy crisis in remote indigenous communities.

The head of library and information services, Darryl Humphreys, thanked the parents and staff for supporting one of the highlights of the college’s calendar and also paid tribute to the organisers and the children for the effort they put into making the week a success.
