Book Week 2023

We are looking forward to celebrating our annual Book Week from Monday 21 August through to Friday 25 August.

This year’s theme, Read, Grow, Inspire’, encapsulates the essence of what Book Week is all about.

Please join us for our annual exciting Book Week Dress Up Parade, which will be held outside (weather permitting) on the bottom court adjacent to the amphitheatre – starting at 9.15am.

We can’t wait to see you there, sharing in the joy of storytelling and imagination.


Have you started to think about a costume? Here are some great ideas from Your Local Families Magazine.

If you have any pre-loved costumes you would like to donate to our Pop Up Costume Shop please send them to school.

Please remember to drop by the Pop Up Costume Shop, which will be open on Tuesday 15 & Wednesday 16 August from 2:45pm – 3:45 pm at the undercover verandah outside of the Year 1 Unit (near the Gym).

An assortment of book character clothes and accessories will be available all priced under $5.00

Book Fair

The excitement continues to build with the arrival of the Scholastic Book Fair in our Library. The Book Fair will be held in the Library from Thursday 17 August  (Week 4) – Tuesday 22 August (Week 5) and will be open from 8.30 am – 9.00 am and 2.30pm to 4.00pm.

We look forward to families visiting us on one of these days with your child’s wish list, which can be used to prepay online.

Book Week Author Visits

We’re thrilled to announce some amazing guest visits during Book Week.

In week 5, Wednesday 23 August, we have Danny Snell, the talented illustrator behind captivating books such as ‘Jeremy’, ‘Seagull’ and ‘Somewhere in Australia’. Our younger students are in for a treat as they interact with Danny.

In Week 6 (Monday August 28) we have our own Craigburn PS parent renowned author, Adam Cece, coming to visit our older students.  Students are in for an enlightening experience, discovering the magic that brings Adam’s books to life.

We look forward to meeting Danny and Adam and learning about how books are created and brought to life for us to enjoy.
