Book Week 2018: Find your Treasure
The Book Week 2018 Theme was “Find your Treasure” and was held from 18 - 24 August 2018.
Thank you to everyone who came in and got involved in all the crazy pirate fun we had over the week. Congratulations to all our entrants in our various competitions this year and of course to our winners.
Visiting Authors: Frances Watts and David Legge
Well weren’t they fun to have? They led each stage through how they met, read us stories (often in costume), had us dancing and gave us drawing lessons and writing tips and all in 1 hour! They were fantastic and we have many lasting memories with all our library books being signed, and even more going home with students, and a Captain Crabclaw all of our very own to hang in the library. You’ll be able to find the panda in the Mandarin room (he’s very much at home in there) and the human figure in action taking up appropriate residence in our art space where he can be studied and admired by all. They truly were a magnificent pair to have visit us.
Book Week Parade
This was our best book parade to-date, with almost everyone in costume and the venue being The Cathedral. Thank you to everyone who made this so incredible and to all our students for being so engaged and patient throughout. Congratulations to all our winners and to everyone for coming in, not only with a book but for considering the character strengths of the people they dressed up as, as well. What a way to finish a wonderful week of literature!
