Book Week Parade 2016

On Thursday 25th August the whole school dressed up for Book Week. The theme for this year was “Australia: Story Country”. Students could come as something from the theme or another character from a book. Everyone in 4B dressed up and looked amazing.  The whole school took part in a parade and it was wonderful to see the different costumes and creative ideas from student (and parents).

During library time this term we have been reading a number of books from the Shortlisted books and last week we had the opportunity to vote on our favourite book. 4B’s favourite was “One step at a time” by Jane Jolley.

Throughout the whole school the 3-6’s selected Mr Huff by Anna Walker and the P-2’s selected “Piranhas Don’t eat bananas” by  Aaron Blabey.
