Last updated 10:40 AM on 9 October 2011

A truly memorable Book Week celebration took place last Wednesday and it was obvious all and sundry had a thoroughly enjoyable day. It was lovely to see so many children dressing up as their favourite book character and likewise the staff.  No I wasn't a hobo, homeless guy, shrek, ogre, hulk or any character from Lord of the Rings: I was Robinson Crusoe (very obvious I thought).

Congratulations to all the entrants in the competitions for having a go and well done to those who were judged winners.

Our Book Fair has been extremely successful with over $2700 in sales. This equates to approximately $900 worth of books to be placed on our library shelves this year. This is an unbelievable effort considering our fair is usually attached to the Education Week Open Day which is probably the biggest day in regard to parent attendance at the school. So thank you so much for digging deep to support your child and his/her school Library.

I would also like to thank all the families who donated books to the Library. We shall place a label inside the book recognising this contribution.
