Carnival in November? An award-winning Primary School builds on its success by promoting the joy of reading with its second annual Reading Carnival.

The award-winning Burrell Boom Methodist School wants to show how much fun reading can be, and is promoting that joy by holding its second Reading Carnival on Saturday, November 17, starting at 3:00 pm on the school grounds in the Village of Burrell Boom.

After the success of the reading promotion last year, the dedicated teachers are looking for a repeat of the outstanding participation by students and parents alike, and are promoting a fun and educational time for all. In this carnival, children dress up as their favorite story book character and join in a colourful parade around the village, followed by a grand Fun Fair on the school grounds. According to Ms. Dawn Flowers, a teacher and one of the creators of the popular event, "there is something for everyone - food, games, a photo booth, a bouncy house, and of course the promotion of the importance of the love of reading."

The event promises to provide an evening of clean, family fun, and includes a free fireworks display. Tickets are $1.00 in advance, $2.00 at the gate and all proceeds benefit the school's feeding program and infant playground.
