What a busy and HUGE BookWeek it’s been at RCC this year!

The week started with Kindy students and parents receiving a presentation called ‘Better Beginnings’ from the City of Armadale library.

Then on Wednesday 24 August, our students participated in a fabulous Book Week parade with some amazing costumes on show, which were a credit to our students and Parents.

The theme this year, ‘Dreaming with eyes open’, certainly allowed for imaginations to run wild, and our parade this year was one of the best, with our students thoroughly enjoying themselves, and outdoing last year’s selection of costumes. This year we also invited our Kindy students to be a part of the parade, and they had a ball.

Earlier in the day, selected staff performed the very hard task of picking a winner in the classroom Book Week door display competition. Our Primary classes all worked tirelessly to create a display based on the BookWeek theme, or from a book in the CBCA’s shortlisted books for 2022.

There were some incredible door displays, but the winner was Mrs Warren’s Year 2 class in Room 3.5 for their fantastic door decoration, based around the book ‘The Huge Bag of Worries’.

Congratulations to everyone and well done on all the hard work. The doors were amazing!

Later in the day, we held our Books on Blankets event, where parents were invited to BYO book and blanket and enjoy reading with their child. The rain stayed away, but unfortunately the sun didn’t make an appearance, but it was great fun and so lovely to see so many families reading together.

Mrs Brooke’s Year 1 class took out the ice cream prize for winning the competition, matching the most staff members to their favourite book. Who would have thought that Mr Brookes favourite book was ‘My Dad’?!

On Thursday, Year 5/6 students participated in the Book Week Quiz. They had to work together in teams to solve some tricky questions. Well done to everyone who took part. It was obvious that you all love reading!

Book Week culminated in a very special performance from Perform Education, titled ‘Story Quest’. It was amazing and our PP to Year 6 students were entertained throughout the performance.

It was a wonderful immersive and fun activity, and a great way to wrap up our Book Week extravaganza this year.
