Cinderella and Superman will take over Cairnlea Park Primary School on Tuesday when pupils come dressed as their favourite characters in celebration of Book Week.

Teacher Natalie Roach says the school embraces the annual event, which helps foster a lifelong love of reading.

“It is important to celebrate Book Week to reinforce a love for books, which they will, hopefully, carry throughout their lives,” she said.

This year’s theme is ‘Australia, Story Country’, and Ms Roach will be reading to her class excerpts from texts by famous Australian authors.

Children’s Book Week is celebrated around the nation between August 20 and 26.
