 Bookweek

 

The highlight of the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Bookweek were special guests, celebrated author Mr Gary Crew and illustrator Mr Paul O’Sullivan. Storybook workshops ensured all Year 9 and 10 students gained from Paul and Gary’s extensive expertise and they shared insights as guest speakers on assembly, reminding us that life’s journey is amazing when we have the courage to follow our dreams.

o Grace Simpson Y9, Emily Denaro Y10 and Amie Hadden Y10, for their creative storybook designs.

Isabella Treston Y7 received an award for an authentic Steam Punk Hat.

“Belinda”, our Library mannequin, had been sporting a steam punk inspired ensemble and she was joined during book week with student artworks and artist statements adjudicated by Mr Crew and Mr O’Sullivan. Isabella Treston’s hat was voted best and most authentic steam punk design, while Shreya Patel’s outdoor themed artwork was awarded second prize. Third place congratulations go to Lauren Abraham for her cleverly designed pencil art item. Georgia McKay’s Mechanical Bird also deserves special mention.
