Last Wednesday Cabra went all out to help celebrate the 70th Annual Children’s Book Council of Australia Book Week. Years 6-8 and many staff came dressed inspired by a book that lights up their world.
As always both teaching and non-teaching staff got into the spirit of the week with an excellent array of book inspired costumes. The overall staff winner as voted by staff at the Book Week Morning Tea was Fiona Graff, or should I say “Princess Fiona”. Runners-up were Sarah Russell and Bec Jasper.
The winner of the Year 6-8 Book Week Dress-Up were as follows: Year 6; Morgan P as Harry Stiles, Runner-Up Joe as The Joker. Year 7; Mikayla N as The Chimney Sweep from Mary Poppins, 2nd place went to Leala T with honourable mentions to Keenan M and Sophie M. The Year 8 winner was Hanna B for her excellent Saddle Club costume, with Ruby E claiming 2nd prize as Tinkerbell.
A huge thank you to the Library Staff, teaching and non-teaching staff and all the students for putting in such a tremendous effort. The enthusiasm for books and reading really did light up our world this week.
Cabra College Book Week 2015 gets off to a great start this week with many activities for both staff and students. Today (Sunday) 15 dedicated writers and illustrators are writing a book in a day. This annual competition is run to raise money and support The Kids Cancer Project. 2015 is the 70th anniversary of Children’s Book Council of Australia Book Week and the theme this year is, “Books Light Up Our World”. Be sure to drop down to either library to borrow a great book to light up your world this week.
Years 6-8, remember this Wednesday is Book Week Dress-Up day. What book or character lights up your world?
Cabra College Book Week 2014 got off to a great start this week with many activities for both staff and students. Each morning students have had a two question quiz and we’ve been displaying Book Week posters created by staff representing their favourite films that were adapted from books.
As is traditional staff were treated to an excellent Book Week Morning Tea in the Senior School Library. Some of the best dressed staff were photographed joining in with the 2014 Book Week theme, ‘Connect to Reading’.
