Book Week 22 - 26 August

A very exciting upcoming event for both libraries at our school and throughout Australia is Book Week. We will be celebrating Book Week from Monday 22nd – Friday 26th. The theme for this year’s Book Week is Australia Story Country and as part of the theme we will be acknowledging all of the fantastic works of our Australian authors and illustrators.
During the week there will be activities running in the library including a game show style quiz running throughout the week, a visit from a local book store Zombster where students can vote on what comic books and manga they want to be purchased for the DC ibrary. The College is also very excited to have a local author Jennifer Poulter and illustrator Takara Beech visit us on Friday to talk to the students and demonstrate their skills!

The Book Week Parade this year will be on Friday 26th August. Students are encouraged to wear a costume of their favourite book character for the parade. We would love to see as many parents as we can at the parade and if you have a baby or toddler they can come in costume too! The parade times for the different year levels are as follows:
Prep to Year 2 - 8:45 – 9:30am
Year 3 to Year 6 - 9:40 – 10:10am

Awards will be given during the parade for winners of the Best Book Week Book voting contest.
Please note that due to Book Week activities Maker Space will not run in Week 7, Friday 26th but will resume again in Week 8 for all students.
