Books Light Up Our World for Book Week

On 20 August, the Junior School was taken over with the likes of Alice in Wonderland, Mr. Happy, The Rainbow Fish, Pippy Longstocking, The Hungry Caterpillar and Harry Potter as they marched in the Junior School book parade.

Nationally, Book Week was held from the 22 to 28 August as we celebrated books lighting up our world.

This year was extra special in that it celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the event. The Children’s Book Council of Australia has been hosting Book Week since 1945 in honour and celebration of the works of Australian writers and illustrators.

The Junior School students and staff completely immersed themselves in books with special author visits and story time with special guest readers.
