We celebrated another fantastic Book Week. Included in our festivities were competitions, book character parades, author visits and student-created art work. Many thanks to all the parents, grandparents and special friends who tested their literary knowledge by entering this year’s Family Book Week quiz.
During the week, students were entertained and informed by our visiting authors including Susannah McFarlane, Isobelle Carmody, Michael Sedunary and illustrator Bern Emmerichs. Many thanks to Mrs Alexandra Yatomi-Clarke for organising Michael Sedunary’s and Bern Emmerichs’ visit to the school. Lit club students were thrilled to have some time to chat one-to-one with authors over lunch. Likewise, our Junior School students enjoyed lunchtime craft and quiz activities.
Our Library displays capture the whimsical nature of this year’s theme with a range of book characters “escaping to everywhere”. The Library entrance was certainly brightened by the “patchwork” Book Week banner created by last year’s Year 5 and Year 6 students. Also, responding to this theme, we have been running a range reading challenges during this year encouraging our students to read widely and experience other cultures and places through literature.
