August 22 till August 26 we celebrated Book Week, a week filled with fun activities that helped us celebrate the joy of books and reading.
The theme of this year’s Book Week was Dreaming With Eyes Open. One possible way to interpret this is to know that when we read books we can escape into another world.
The students from Prep to Year 4 visited a Meerkat Productions who presented a great interpretation of the shortlisted book: Stellarphant. The students were well prepared to participate in the production by creating masks, and were able to enjoy the book presented in a unique and entertaining way.
On Tuesday, August 23, many students came to school in their pyjamas (an essential item to enhance dreaming). At lunchtime they were able to attend a reading of “Are We There Yet?” by Mr Morris.
Thursday was the day of our Book Parade. Everyone enjoyed listening to Mr Brew and Mrs Nguyen read the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. The parade highlighted the many ways families supported their children in getting dressed for the occasion. Many students came as their favourite book character, some came as people who they dream of becoming, and some even came as dreamers. No matter who they came as, it was great to see so many of our school community be involved in the fun activities of the day.
