Warrnambool East Primary School was filled with The Avengers, healthcare workers and football players as students dressed up as their superheroes.
As a school partner in the Bethany Superhero Awards, the students had the chance to be their own superheroes for the day and enter the awards.
Youth mentor James Chapman said the program has encouraged students to look to untraditional role models.
"Some of the younger kids dressed up as Marvel characters but a lot of the older ones came as their family members, friends or teachers," Mr Chapman said.
"The kids have reflect on the heroes in their everyday lives and hopefully, each year we do this, they understand that superheroes can be anyone."
The school's community project leaders chose to look to their everyday lives for their costumes.
Nicola Poyner, 11 dressed as her family who inspire her to do things she normally wouldn't and Peyton Karlinski, 11 came as her teachers who encourage her.
Hamish McBain, 11 dressed like his dad and Levi Zahra, 11 wore Essendon Football colours like his idol Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti.
Noah Hayes, 11 chose two superheroes to dress like.
"My footy coach Simon always know when something's happening and he makes it better," Noah said.
"I also came as Spencer, he's been my best mate since we were born and he makes me happy."
Primary school students have until Friday, May 28 to nominate a relative, family friend, teacher, coach or anyone in their community they admire to win a Superhero Award via bethany.org.au/superhero-awards-2021
