Book Week 2014!

We have had a wonderful week of celebrations for Book Week 2014. Thank you to our Library team who ran activities and assemblies.
We asked families to send a photo of how they connect to reading. The slideshow below shows the many different ways we connect to reading and how reading connects us to each other and the wider world. 

How did you celebrate Book Week 2014?

Book Week - Connect to Reading!

Connect To Reading!

Book Week for 2014 begins on Saturday 16th August until Friday 22nd August. This year the theme is ‘Connect To Reading’. Each class will be running activities over the week to celebrate  Australian authors and great books.
We are having a dress up day on Wednesday 20th August. We will begin the day with a parade in the hall that all parents are welcome to attend. Students are encouraged to dress up as a character they connect with in their reading.
As a school community we would like all families to think about how you, as a family, connect to reading or how reading connects you to each other - your community - the world. Some examples are: reading a recipe, a map, sign posts, menus, newspapers, text messages, blogging, etc. Take a photo and send it to:
We will make a slideshow of all our photos and post them on our school blogs.
On Tuesday 12th August the students will attend a workshop run by Richard Galbraith, a writer, illustrator, cartoonist and storyteller. Richard will run workshops on cartooning where students will learn to create and draw cartoon characters and weave them into simple stories.
Throughout Book Week we will have our Library team reading books to the whole school at Lunchtime.
We are looking forward to an exciting
Book Week at St. Lukes!
