East Narrogin PS deputy principal Joanna Hayes said the school hosted a parade for the students and staff to show off their costumes.

“Last Wednesday all East Narrogin Primary students were invited to dress as their favourite book character based on this year’s theme ‘dreaming with eyes open’,” she said.

“The book parade was an opportunity for students and staff to come together and celebrate authors and illustrators of Australian literature.

“It was great to also see staff joining in the fun as Little Miss and Mr Men characters.”
