Book Week – reminder

Book Week – reminder

On Monday, 20th August we will be celebrating Book Week. At assembly we will have our Book Week parade where students come dressed as their favourite character. Please start talking to your child about their outfit for Book Week. It is great if they can use clothes and props from home. We love the homemade variety!!

Following the assembly, students will be involved in cross-age art activities based on the short-listed books.

It promises to be a fun day for all!
