This year for Book Week we asked your children to embrace the theme “Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds”. This exciting invitation opened a world full of possibilities when it comes to book week costume ideas. This was an opportunity for your child to escape into another world and be anything they want to be!
Our parade was a little different this year. With families unable to attend due to COVID restrictions, we decided to share our costumes with the surrounding streets. Students paraded their Book Week costumes walking different routes to our assembly. Some members of the community lined the street to watch us walk by, we felt like we were in the pageant! We hope that you are able to catch a glimpse of all of the amazing costumes. We thank families for their enthusiasm when it comes to dressing up for Book Week, a lot of thought and effort goes into preparing these. We appreciate your partnership in making the celebration a success.
We also thank Sue Thornton and the Book Week Committee, Jacki Theodorou and Emma Salini for all of their planning and coordination of activities. We admired their flexibility and the way that they adapted to COVID restrictions along the way ensuring that as many activities as possible went ahead and we were able to celebrate the week.
It was wonderful to see students enjoying the Book Week activities, we tried to capture some of the excitement in the photos below, and will include more in our 2021 Year Books.
