ST JOHN'S school celebrated Book Week in style as students and teachers donned colourful costumes on Friday.

The school got into the spirit by dressing up for the book character fancy dress parade at the school hall.

Prizes were awarded for each year group, with Fr Jamie Collins doing the judging aided by Hogwarts professors Dumbledore and McGonagle (who may or may not have been principal Nicholas Lynch and vice- principal Tina Goldsmith respectively).

It was part of a week of festivities which included a school reading time and a Where's Wally? competition which involved students finding the pictures of Wally hidden around the school.

There was also a book trail with books around the school, apparently including a hippopotamus on the roof eating cake.

There were also appearances from Captain Greybeard, the famous local pirate, who told stories in the library at lunchtime.
