ANSON Street School was hooked on books recently when they performed at their annual school concert.
Twelve books were picked for the concert with students performing dance and drama to highlight their chosen book.
Relieving principal Russell Webb said there was a wide range of books chosen for their hooked on books concert.
Some of the well known books included the Lion King, Wombat Stew, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the much-loved The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Mr Webb said they chose the book theme to coincide with the 2012 National Year of Reading and the concert was just one of a number of reading events held this year.
“We’ve had a major focus on reading right through the year,” he said.
“Because of the focus on reading we’re engaged in it. It was timely to use books and the enjoyment of reading as that focus.
“They [the students] created a concert item around their favourite book.”
Mr Webb said the concert was performed on two days last week so the maximum number of parents, families and community members could attend.
“We’re always amazed at how well our students rise to the occasion and dress up and fit in with their classmates,” he said.
“They did it flawlessly over both days, it was quite a spectacular event.”
