While the school may have delayed Book Week celebrations to fall in line with the events being hosted by the Leeton Shire Council for 2014 Book Week, the signficance of the event has not been diminished with a huge range of events being used to mark not only Book Week, but the significance of 'Connecting to Reading'.
The school hosted its biggest ever Book Week Character Parade on Tuesday, highlighted by over 700 students and community members either engaging in the parade or spectating at the event. As always, super hero characters were extremely popular, with a distinct flavour of 'Frozen' characters as well as old favourites like 'Dr Seuss' books and familiar characters such as Little Red Riding Hood, Harry Potter, the Paper Bag Princess and many, many more!
The conclusion of the parade was highlighted by family shared lunch which proved popular with the community.
Whilst the Book Week Character Parade was the jewel in the crown of Book Week at Parkview, students from Years 3-6 enjoyed immensely the organised author visit faciltated by Leeton Shire Council at the Roxy Theatre on Monday, whilst the traditional Shire Library Visits, this year featuring a 'Lego' theme, were again well received by excited and eager K-2 students.
