Book Week and the Parade

What a huge success!

Special events are important in a school’s calendar and Book Week is no exception. This year our staff collectively decided to come in a Harry Potter theme. This was the brainchild of Mrs Scott and Miss Cooney. Miss Locking and the school’s literacy team  should be congratulated for doing a wonderful job of organising this event. As usual, our students supported the dress up by going all out and turning up to school in such wonderful costumes. We certainly have some talented parents out in the community. Our school values the importance of reading and this fun day was just another way we celebrate reading across the school. For the second year in a row, I have adorned a full length grey beard, I am starting to worry that I am being stereotyped.

Book Week Author Visit

Danny Katz, the internationally acclaimed author, visited the school this week to share with the Year F-6 students his journey as a writer. Danny was extremely entertaining and hopefully motivated our students to push the limits of their writing ability. Our Book Fair has, again, proved to be a most popular event for students. I will be speaking to our students about the opportunity to develop a book swap event where students can trade books.

Fathers’ Day Stall.

As usual, our Fathers’ Day stall was a huge success. There were plenty of gifts available to purchase and our PCA did a wonderful job organising the event. Felicity should be congratulated for organising this event. I am sure that our dads will appreciate the thought that went into selecting the gifts. I hope that everyone has an enjoyable Fathers’ Day this Sunday.
