Children’s Book Week for 2020 officially runs from Saturday 17th to Friday 23rd of October. During Book Week the Library will be running a number of competitions including an Inter Class Quiz Challenge and a Favourite Book Poster or Book Review competition as well as lots of fun Curious Creatures related craft activities.

Book Character Parade - Friday 23rd October 
At this stage, we will be holding our Annual Book Week Costume Parade during Friday’s assembly on the 23rd October.  Information about our parade will be updated at the end of the term as COVID-19 regulations may change. 

All children (and staff) are encouraged to dress as their favourite book character for the parade.  You might like to start talking to your child about what character they would like to dress as.  Doing an internet search or visiting our local second hand clothing shops can also provide you with great ideas for costumes. 

Please remember the parade is not a competition and you don’t need to spend a lot of money on costumes.  The main aims of the parade are to reinforce the importance of reading, to help celebrate Children’s Book Week and to have fun dressing up.

Also, it is important to remember when choosing costumes for the Book Week parade that they do need to be suitable for wear at school.  If the costume involves thongs, sandals or high heels then children need to bring in their school shoes to change into.  Also, if the costume would be uncomfortable or too bulky to wear all day or is not sun safe please get your child to bring their sports uniform to change into.  I would recommend that Prep and Year 1 students (and older students where possible) wear their sports uniform underneath their costume to make it easier for them to change.
