Looking back at Book Week 2017 - start planning for Book Week 2018!

Important Information - Character Parade

Book Week 2018 - This years theme is ‘Find Your TREASURE.  Book week activities will be held in week 7.  The character parade is scheduled for the morning of Monday 3rd September.  Children are encouraged to choose a favourite book, one they TREASURE and dress up as one of the characters.  The costumes do not need to be elaborate, in fact, parents are encouraged to get their child involved in the planning and creating process.  Your child will feel more inclined to help if they are excited about the character they're dressing up as.  

- Students may wear their costume all day, including to and from school.

- Costumes must be comfortable and practical enough to wear all day otherwise, students will be required to change back into their school uniform or different clothes that reflect the character in some way.

- Students are required to wear enclosed shoes and their school hat during break times.

- Please don't send or use any items that are precious
