PIRATES took over the school at Avoca in the name of fun and celebration.
Staff, students and parents from Avoca Public School dressed up for the grand re-opening of the school’s library.
About $20,000 was spent on upgrades to the library, which included a new interactive television, new books, painting, shelving and a rug with the school motto.
Former school librarian Kay Prattis cut the ribbon on the improved building, and said the changes had revitalised the room.
“It’s beautiful and fresh, a great place for the children to read and learn,” she said.
It was also the Kindergarten 2017 pirate party, welcoming the students who would be joining the school next year.
School administration manager Sarah Daniels said the children had enjoyed creating pirate themed decorations through their classrooms.
“Pirates have been the main theme of the literacy program this term,” she said.
“As we are a positive behavioural learning school, we have rewarded the students for their hard work and good behaviour with this special day.”
Avoca Public School is located at 961 Sheepwash Road, Avoca.
