Book Week Assembly Parade

 Friendly reminder – Book Week is next week.

We hope everyone’s costumes are taking shape in preparation for our annual Book Week Dress Up Day. Please see below for details.

“Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds”

This year’s theme is ‘Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds.’

Each year across Australia, The CBCA (Children’s Book Council of Australia) brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Children’s Book Week. During this time schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children celebrate Australian children’s literature.

During this time your child will be involved in the Book Week character dress up day, attending a whole school incursion and a Book Fair.

Book Character Dress Up Day – Friday 27th August

The Book Week character dress up day will be held on Friday 27th August with a whole school assembly at 9.30am to showcase student costumes.  This year’s theme, ‘Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other World’ is an exciting one that enables students to use their imagination by choosing to come dressed as a favourite book character or something associated with the theme.

Unfortunately, due COVID-19 restrictions we will not be able to have parents and friends attend the assembly. We will endeavour to share pics on the day via our Facebook Page.

We look forward to seeing everyone dressed up in their favourite book character.

Kind regards,
