BOOK CHARACTER DAY

All students are invited to dress as a Book Character on Tuesday 4 September and to bring donate a gold coin to raise money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. The Book Week Parade for Years 1 to 3 will be held at 9am in the Hall.

BOOK WEEK - GREAT BOOK SWAP

The Great Book Swap is a fantastic way to celebrate reading in our local community, and raise much-needed funds for remote Indigenous communities. The idea is to swap a favourite book in exchange for another, for a gold coin donation. Last year, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation raised over $190,000 from the Great Book Swap and this year their goal is to raise $300,000 to gift 30,000 new books to remote communities who have few to none. After all, how can you learn to read without books ? Help us help them by making a donation to our Great Book Swap page and sharing it with your friends!

This year the Premier has challenged students from Prep-Year 2 to read or experience 20 books, Year 3 and Year 4 to read 20 books and Year 5-9 to read 15 books. Experiencing books includes shared reading, listening to stories or reading picture books.

Every student who completes the challenge will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier. I look forward to seeing as many of our students as possible participate in the challenge.

For the first time this year, German books have also been included in the suggested reading list.
