Thank you to all students, families and staff who contributed to Junior School 2019 Book Week activities and learning experiences focused on reading. Workshops with visiting authors, reading books shortlisted for Children’s Book Council awards, dressing up as favourite book characters, launching a class publication for one Early Learning group, and simply enjoying good books were all part of the week.
Particular thanks go to Marissa Saville and Miranda Creak whose overnight transformation of conneXions from Science Week’s ‘Destination Moon’ to Book Week’s ‘Reading is my Secret Power’ captured the interest and engagement of students across the campus. Thank you also to Kylie Brewster who coordinated author visits and a range of opportunities with books and online to inspire appetites for reading among readers from age 3-12.
