Book Week highlights

Book Week 

Each year since 1945 the Children’s Book Council of Australia has brought children and books together across Australia through the CBCA Book Week. This year’s theme Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds inspired a colourful array of costumes and engaging activities and events, highlighting the importance of reading and reminding us of the ongoing benefits of reading for future success. 

Thank you to our College community for being part of this wonderful week and for encouraging our students to get involved with costumes that celebrated classic and contemporary book characters. Extra special thanks to our staff ‘characters’ who always go above and beyond to celebrate reading!
