Book Feast in the Junior School
Perhaps the most anticipated event in the Junior Library calendar is our Dress up and Feast day, which has now become a tradition at PLC Sydney. Hamilton and Evandale students joined together for a combined lunchtime feast, organised by the P & F Association. Sausages were cooked on the BBQ, fruit skewers were assembled and lolly bags were filled. Thanks to all the planning and organisation by some very dedicated parents, the whole Junior School was supplied with a lunch box of food in record time.
Students came as every character imaginable. Staff were encouraged to dress as a character from Alice in Wonderland and as a result, Mad Hatters, White Rabbits, King and Queen of Hearts, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, playing cards and rose bushes invaded the Evandale playground. Among the many characters making an appearance, Mr Morphew was a very convincing Mad Hatter, complete with tea pot and cup, Mrs Wheatley and Mrs White were the King and Queen of Hearts, Mrs McMullan and Mrs O'Doherty were the White Rabbit and Miss Hobson and Miss Jeong were a great twosome as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Mrs Smyth, Mrs Watters and Miss Shearer came as playing cards. A number of Alice in Wonderland characters looking suspiciously like teachers, were seen to start a 'Nut Bush' flash mob and students soon joined in the fun.
It was a wonderful opportunity for the whole Junior School – staff, students along with many parent helpers, to have fun together and show that books really do 'Light up our World'.
