Book week  -   Thank you so much for supporting our book week so generously. The commission we get on the book sales will enable us to buy approximately $2,500 worth of books from Scholastic. This is a huge injection of new books, which all 440 children will love reading, browsing, sharing.

A big thank you to Kerry Jones and Amanda Davies for organising the book fair and also to Mr Houghton, Victoria and Anna, and all of the wonderful parents who have helped in any way this week, especially Anne Graham.  Thank you very much.

The weather was kind for our book character parade and the children enjoyed walking through the shopping centre.
