With tricky Covid regulations still in place, Port Noarlunga Primary took their Book Week parade to streets for the first time.
Old World, New World, Other World
What a sight to behold. Aliens, dinosaurs, pirates, chefs, astronauts, princesses, superheroes—too many to count! All joyfully walking out of the school grounds on a sunny Wednesday morning. Book Week has always been an exciting time at school, with imaginations being stretched and creative costumes on show.
2021 saw the Book Week parade leave school grounds for the first time ever—possibly sparking a new annual tradition.
Families gathered on one side of the road while staff and students walked a specially designated route on the opposite side, waving, smiling, and laughing.
It was a welcome solution for parents/caregivers not being permitted on school grounds under current covid regulations who couldn’t attend the usual morning assembly.
Even the staff and students at Frieda Corpe Kindergarten got to enjoy the show with the parade passing directly by them. It was such a fun experience it required extra laps!
Thanks to Performing Arts Teacher Susie Scott for composing an amazing song and dance for students to perform in the morning before heading out to the parade.
Thanks to Tina in the Resource Centre for he efforts in organising another successful and extra-memorable Book Week.
