BOOK WEEK 2020
Term 4 Week 2 October 17 to 23.
Each year, schools and public libraries across Australia spend a week celebrating books, and Australian authors and illustrators.
The theme this year is Curious Creatures, Wild Minds
We began our Book Week celebrations when our Year F-3 students were treated to a show by Perform Education.
Nick and Maddie presented The Greatest Discovery, taking us through a very engaging drama and musical performance which wove in several of the shortlisted books from the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) awards for 2020. Our students really enjoyed the show, and our performers had some wonderful feedback about their audience too
(“best audience yet”).
Thanks to Mrs Lloyd and Mrs Melville, who have been busy preparing for some exciting surprises for Book Week in the library. Students have shown a lot of interest in the display of shortlisted CBCA books and are looking forward to reading them.
P&F organized a Radicool Reptiles session for all year levels.
Book Week Dress up day & Parade was held on Thursday 22 October.
Students were encouraged to dress up for the day as a favourite book character or something which fits this year’s theme
There was a costume class parade mid morning in Taikondi. Great costumes everyone!
