This year Book Week will take place during Week 6 between August 20th and August 24th. Throughout the week we will be celebrating Australian Children’s Literature and the event will culminate on Friday the 24th with a Prep/1/2 Parade. Students are encouraged to come to school dressed as their favorite character from a book.

The parade will be held on the netball courts from 9 – 9.30am.

Each year across Australia, the CBCA brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Book Week.
