On Friday, March 6th, the halls of CKSS were flooded with some of our favourite literary characters when students and teachers who have a passion for reading dressed up in creative costumes for the annual Literacy Day Parade.
There was a cast of creative characters that were spotted throughout the day. The not so lovely Christian Grey made an appearance… Run, am I right ladies? Among the crowd of lively book characters, the lion, the witch and the wardrobe could be spotted strutting their stuff. Mr. Thompson and Mr. Nicholson dressed up as the title of the book “The Old Man and the Sea”, and grade 11 Student Blake Smith took on the persona of Wallis Wells, the roommate in the graphic novel series “Scott Pilgrim.”
Grade 12 student, Sam Hacking, put together an adorable closet cosplay of Frodo Baggins, becoming the first place winner of the costume contest, recieving “The Essential Kate DiCamillo Collection” as her prize. Kate DiCamillo wrote some of the most cherished childhood stories, such as “Because of Winn-Dixie” and “The Tale of Despereaux”
If you missed your chance to dress up this year, you have a whole year to meticulously plan out your winning costume! Thank you to all who participated!
