Scholastic Book Fair
Our school library runs an exciting Book Fair once per year. During Book Fair our Library is turned into a Pop Up book store, where students, families and the school community can purchase wonderful literary items.
Book Week is a Nation wide celebration organised by the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA). The CBCA organises the annual Children’s book of the year awards. Each year they select books, from the many put forward, for a short-list in the categories of – picture book, early childhood, younger readers, older readers and non-fiction. Some of these short-listed books and winners are in our library and will be featured leading up to and during our Book Week celebrations.
Book Week provides an opportunity to celebrate a love of books and reading. It is an important week in the school’s calendar.

Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.
