It’s almost Book Week. The most exciting week in the school library’s calendar. Book Week is celebrated nationally all around Australia. This year’s theme is Dreaming With Eyes Open… In the Secondary School, Book Week is celebrated in Week 7, from the 22nd until the 26th of August. This year we are excited to be joining with Blue Day celebrations for an epic week.

Friday 26th of August – Book Week and Blue Day dress up day.
We are combining the two special dress up days. Students and staff are encouraged to get involved. You have a few choices for what to wear – a book character costume with a touch of blue, a blue outfit or a blue book character costume. Here are some ideas on how to combine the two in an epic blue book character costume. A gold coin donation will be collected for everyone who gets involved, with money raised going to men’s mental health.
At lunchtime on the Friday in the Walker Courtyard, we will host a costume parade and competition for anyone who wants to show of their costume. There will be prizes for individual and group staff and student costumes.
The Legacy BBQ will also be held in the Walker Courtyard at lunch.
Finally, a Colour Run will be held after school on the lawn near Wellbeing.
