Library from home
While we’re working from home, you can enjoy a range of Library activities by checking out the Library CALEB page. Finish logging your Premier’s Reading Challenge books, create a digital bookmark for our Bookmark Competition, design and upload your Book Trailer, and lots more! Keep checking back in as we will be adding more activities throughout the week.
Book Week MONTH!
You are all used to celebrating Book Week in the month of August… but we have so many great ways to enjoy books and reading that we are celebrating Book MONTH!
Premier’s Reading Challenge
The 2021 Premier’s Reading Challenge is wrapping up. Our K-2 classes have completed the Challenge as a group and will be receiving their certificates at the end of the year. Students in Years 3-6 need to keep logging the books they have read on the PRC student site to make sure they finish the Challenge and earn their certificates too.
UPDATE: Students can now log up to 10 free choice books!
Students who complete the Challenge every year from Grade 3-9 will receive a medallion from the Premier of NSW.
Mr Russell has just published a new picture book, The Incredibly Busy Mind of Bowen Bartholomew Crisp. Once we’re back face-to-face students will be treated to a special reading of the new book by Mr Russell, and once again he is offering for students to buy their very own copy at a discounted price of $20. More details to come once we’re together in person again.
This year we are holding a Scholastic Book Fair during Book Week. Students will browse the Fair and create wish-lists to take home Monday 23 August – Wednesday 25 August. The wish-list contains details of how to pre-pay book purchases online. Just record the receipt details on the wish-list and send it back in with your child on Thursday 26 August as proof of purchase, so that students can collect their book/s. All sales contribute to building student enthusiasm for books, and to growing our Library collections, so we appreciate your support.
Book Character Costume Parade
We are holding our Costume Parade on Friday 27 August in Periods 1 and 2. Parents are unable to join us in person, but you can still be part of the fun by tuning in to our livestream event by clicking on the Live Streams tile from your Parent Dashboard on CALEB.
Throughout Book Month, students can participate in our Bookmark creation competition (designing a bookmark based on the Book Week theme, Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds), our Book Trailer competition (making their own book trailers to promote books they love), and our Primary class challenge to read at least one book together every day throughout the month of August. Upload your entries to the Library CALEB page.
