Each year since 1945 the CBCA has brought children and books together across Australia through CBCA Book Week. During this time schools and public libraries spend one glorious week celebrating books and Australian children’s authors and illustrators. Classroom teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians create colourful displays, develop activities, run competitions and tell stories relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading. You will often see parades with students dressed as their favourite book character.

Our school will be participating again this year with our annual Book Week Parade during the second week of Term 4. Due to COVID restrictions, this event will not be open to the public but will be shared via digital technologies after the event.

Students are asked to come dressed in a character from a book and to bring along that book to share during the parade. More information about this will be shared closer to the date. Time to get your thinking cap on! Who will you dress up as?
