Celebrating Book Week – Australia: Story Country

Aussie Stories for Lunch…

During Book Week we had the opportunity to listen to some of our teachers read us Australian stories each lunchtime in the LRC. Some very keen bookworms came to enjoy listening to stories every day…

Our Book Week Parade

The highlight of Book Week was our Book Week Parade! This year our students were encouraged if possible to come as a character from a book written by an Australian author to celebrate the many Australian stories and book characters we enjoy reading. Our students, parents and staff never cease to amaze me with their creativity and it was a delight to see the many ingenious ways a multitude of book characters came to life on Top Yard on Friday morning. Thank you so much to everyone for embracing our Book Week Parade with such enthusiasm and joy!

After our Book Week Parade our classes enjoyed a variety of literature and art activities focused on a Australian authors and books.  A fun day was had by all!
