CBCA Book Week 2019










CBCA Book Week 2019
Theme: Reading is My Secret Power
Dates: 17 - 23 August 2019

Each year across Australia, the CBCA brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Book Week. During this time schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children celebrate Australian children's literature and you will often see children's book character parades and talented librarians creating amazing displays. 
We celebrate this event with the following activities:
Book Fair:
WDSS is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair on 13th August to the 23rd August to increase literacy and to encourage our students to read. Every year more than 600 families from WDSS come together to promote reading, books and lifelong learning at our Book Fair.
Nerang State Library Visit:
Our local library will be visiting on Thursday 15th August to read with the students. They share information about our awesome local library and showcase some of the CBCA Book Week award winning books.
Book Character Parade:
Every year the staff and students come to school dressed as their favourite book character. The students have a great day talking about their chosen character and role playing in the classroom and on the playground. There are prizes, celebrations and encouragement awards, the aim is for our students to build positive memories of their favourite book.
