Next term we will be celebrating Book Week.
Each year, many schools and public libraries from all over Australia spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators. Classroom teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians develop activities, offer competitions and tell stories relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading. At St Paul’s we will celebrate book week over the term in our library program.
As part of our Book Week Celebrations we will be having our:
- Book Fair: Monday 21st – Friday 25th August,
- Dress up Parade: 22nd August (come dressed as a book character),
- Book Blanket: 24th August (shared reading time across the school).
All of these events will take place during Book Week in week 7. The holidays would be a great time to start thinking and preparing for your child’s costume.
