EDIT: I sincerely apologise that this was not live yesterday, I made an error when posting by blog and it didn’t publish to the public!! How embarassing.
WE DID IT! Yesterday we got to see all of the children dressed up in their finest book inspired costumes. It was, to say the least fantastic, and I spent the morning wandering around the Junior School having a look at all the effort that went into creating some super costumes.
We had handsome princes, jellyfish, Robin Hood, several characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a handful of Wizards, some serious Lord of the Ring homages and, as always, a couple of very adorable princesses.
Having been my first book week with The Hamilton and Alexandra College, I must say that the effort put in by the students (and probably some crafty parents, grandparents or other awesome people) was outstanding. Congrats to everyone, you all looked amazing.
The teachers got in on the fun as well, dressing up in MANY items from the book Shoes from Grandpa. Although, the best dressed teacher didn’t follow our theme and showed up as the Mad Hatter – well done Mrs. O’Brien!
