HUNTER students embodied the spirits of literary legends including Harry Potter, Wally and Dorothy at Book Week parades across the region.
Students were encouraged to dress up as their favourite characters this week, with creative parents helping make some magnificent costumes.
The week is a celebration of children's literature and often involves book character parades and talented librarians and teachers creating amazing displays.
Take a look at some of the fabulous costumes in the gallery above.
