Pirates, princesses and Harry Potter: St Mary’s Book Week celebrations | Photos, video

Pirates, pharaohs and Harry Potter were popular characters which made an appearance at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in honour of Book Week on Thursday.

However, Thing 1 and Thing 2, from Dr Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat, were by far the most popular among the students.

Celebrating children’s literacy and reading, the whole school got into the novel experience, gathering in the hall to cheer on the students during their parades.

St Mary’s were among the last of Orange’s schools to hold their Book Week events, with students from Catherine McAuley Catholic Primary School, Bowen Public School, Orange Public School’s infants and Orange Anglican Grammar School featuring in our photo gallery last week.
