Book week

Book Week

Each year, schools and public libraries across Australia spend a week celebrating books, and Australian authors and illustrators. Teachers and librarians conduct activities relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading.

Book Week occurs in Term 3 at the end of August in Week 6.

Events during Book Week include:

*  The K-2 Book Character Parade

The book character parade is a fun opportunity for students to dress up as their favourite book characters and parade in front of their peers.

*  3-6 Book Character Dress Up

*  Scholastic Book Fair

Our school hosts a Scholastic Book Fair during Book Week every year.

Parents, carers and students will have the opportunity to explore a huge range of affordable books featuring characters and subjects children love and want to read about.

This is also a great way for you to learn about and discuss your child's interests and every book sold benefits our school, adding resources to our library and classrooms.
