Book Week Fun!

This week is Book Week!

The Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) 2017 Book Week theme is “Escape to Everywhere”.

The CBCA runs Book Week each year, and our school always enjoys celebrating this national event. Books play such an important part in our learning, and to commemorate Book Week, our students are participating in the following activities:

* Dress up parade – students dress up as a book character and participate in the whole school parade.

* Borrowing competitions – students need to return their books in their library session to be in the draw for a prize.

* Book Fair – students and parents have the opportunity to buy books from the Book Fair in our school foyer.

* Donate a book – students can buy a book from the Book Fair and donate it to the library.

Book Week

This year, the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) celebrates its 70th anniversary. The 2015 Book Week theme is “Books light up our world”. This is a wonderful message, as reading really is a wonderful past time and we can learn so much from what we read.

The CBCA runs Book Week each year, and our school always enjoys celebrating this national event. Books play such an important part in our learning, and to commemorate Book Week, our students are participating in the following activities:

* Dress up parade – students dress up as a book character and participate in the whole school parade.

* Multi-age art activity – students create artwork inspired by the 2015 shortlisted books.

* Borrowing competitions – students need to return their books in their library session to be in the draw for a prize.

* Book Fair – last week, students and parents had the opportunity to buy books from the Book Fair in our school foyer.

* Donate a book – students could buy a book from the Book Fair and donate it to the library.

The official CBCA winners were:
