Andrews Primary School yesterday selected winners to participate in the district competition hosted by the Nadi Town Council which begins on Monday.

“We have selected our winners from each category of competition accordingly to participate in the council’s Library Week Celebrations,” Ms Sharma said.

“It is a good idea like always because it opens our views to creativity and ways to promote books and libraries to everyone.”

The students enjoyed character parades whereby participants paraded in the attires of their favourite characters from story books.

School teacher Roseline Sharma said the celebrations were marked early so that everyone could participate in what was organised by the council.

Andrew Primary is one of the more than 20 schools in Nadi participating in the National Library Week celebration hosted by the Nadi Town Council at the Civic Centre.

Children will be participating in the various competitions such as poster competitions, character parades, reading competition, dances and oratory competition.

The Council’s Library Week Celebration organising chairperson Premila Chandra said the celebration would allow teachers and students to creatively interact at district level and learn from one another.

“Our aim is to promote the traditional method of reading, books and libraries,” Ms Chandra said.

“So in order to keep this alive we need an integrated approach.

“Our children can learn more and participate in some new events rather than the idea of only having character parades in the schools every time.”

Ms Chandra said the Library Week would end on Saturday with a march followed by the final programme.
