BOOK WEEK

The Book Week theme for 2022 was ‘Dreaming with Eyes open.’

Students read the CBCA Book of the Year shortlist and recorded which was their favourite, showing that you are never too old to read a picture book. 

 

 

Mr Ashley loaned us a wonderful illustrated First Nations story ‘From Country with Love’ by Rhys Paddick and Emma Gibbens which students placed around the Library for a yarn walk. Ms Hobbs, Ms Hersi and The Power Collective ran The Great Book Swap, selling pre-loved reads for a gold coin raising money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation 

The front wall was themed with ‘Dream’ related books, collaborative colouring-in and the Book Worms Competition. Students also had an opportunity to take wonderful photographs with our Book Week sign which was also used to inspire ideas for the Access It Catalogue Library Search and the Writing Competition. 

Lunchtime events were a hit with a screening of First Nations bedtime stories, a dream themed bookish Kahoot Quiz, a bookmark-making Crafternoon and a Silent Reading Party.
