Book Week is 24- 28 August. At Woodend our celebration event will be at 10:00 am on Friday 28 August. Using our innovation on this year’s theme: Books Light up our World, all classes will join in our Lantern Parade. Students are creatively designing lanterns inspired by their favourite books. Our parade will be quite a spectacle!

Some classes have decided to include a dress up day as part of their Inquiry through literature. Teachers involved in this will have advised you of their arrangements.

There’s only one more sleep and then we find out which books are the winners in the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year awards. (announced 21st August)

Check out the short list here

If you have time, be sure to drop into our library to see our illuminations. Our Tree of Lights is amazing.
