Book Week 2016 is in full swing at Braemar College.
This year’s theme is Australia! Story Country, and our Resource Centre staff in conjunction with young Braemar College artists have created four great displays.
They depict an urban, reef, rainforest and outback environment, and feature the shortlisted books and 2016 CBCA award winners. The fabulous artwork was created by Year 6 students under the guidance of teacher, Jennifer Tyquin.
Lunchtime Book Week fun in the Resource Centre includes an indigenous Australian art activity and bookmark making.
There’s also a competition to match staff members to their favourite book from childhood, a book they loved as an adult or a book they are currently reading.
Entry forms are available, and can be lodged at the Resource Centre.
As part of the Book Week activities, there will be a literary lunch for senior students in Jackson Hall today with visiting authors, Bec Kavanagh, Simmone Howell and Ellie Marnie.
