Children as young as three dressed to impress at a special parade held at Gad’s Hill School today, to celebrate World Book Day.

The Nursery classes joined the Kindergarten and Junior students at a catwalk show in the school theatre, where classmates, and their teachers, took a turn on the runway dressed as book characters.

Many of the outfits had been hand crafted by the students themselves and some had opted to dress as heroes or villains from books they are studying in class.

Year six form tutor, Mrs Joanne Titler, said:  “Reading really helps bring imaginations to life.

“I am very impressed by the wide range of colourful creations we have on display today, and most importantly the children have all read, or are going to read, the book that their character is from.”

“As always, a huge thank you to our parents, who are instrumental in the creation of fantastic costumes year-on-year.”

As well as book characters, a handful of students fashioned their own literary-themed attire – the Gad’s children cheered as an encyclopedia and library strutted down the runway!
