This year the theme for Book Week was Dreaming with Eyes Open… On Monday we had a visit from Georgia and Samuel from Perform! Who did an amazing job presenting Story Quest using singing and acting and some of 2022 nominated Book Week books. The students did some of the actions and one of the favourites was “It’s okay to be different” which the children did with some actions!
On Tuesday we had our Book Week Parade and did we have some amazing visitors to our school! From minions to crayons, sports stars to superheroes and caterpillars to butterflies, and a whole menagerie of animals. As JK Rowling says… “I do believe something magical happens when you read a book!” and the great characters that emerged on our stage are testimony to that!
Later in the week, the students will be visiting the Nedlands Library to see either Meg McKinlay or Nadia King. Two Australian authors who we will be lucky to get a chance to meet and hear their journeys about writing and creating!

Literacy Day and The Great Book Swap
Monday 29th of August is Literacy Day and The Great Book Swap.
Parents are warmly invited to the Welcome to Country at 9 am in Barry Park led by Bruce and Linda Loo. The students will then have time with Bruce and Linda to discuss the idea of Storytelling. Each class will complete various age-appropriate activities related to these discussions.
This is also the day of The Great Book Swap. Please send in your good condition preloved books fordonation as soon as possible to your child’s class teacher. On Monday each child will be asked to make a small note or gold coin donation for the book swap. Pre-Kindy and Kindy will be part of The Great Book Swap with their class teacher later in the week.
Thank you for your support. Hope to see you Monday morning!
