In the Words of the Champion Post,
Hundreds of children turned out on Friday morning for Parkes’ annual Reading Day.
This year’s theme was LET’S GET REaDICULOUS and REaD REaDICULOUSLY.
Young and old alike were dressed REaDICULOUSLY for a jam-packed program of activities.
Politicians and Principals dressed readiculously and read in readiculous places down the main street of Parkes, to the delight of children and the whole community.
And best of all? When a young child was asked two days later about what had he learnt at Reading Day, his answer was: ‘Read, Talk, Sing and Rhyme with your baby all the time.’
