It was a great week in the WCCS Library last week. We celebrated BOOK WEEK.

It was so good to  see students and teachers having fun for The Great Mystery Teacher Swap each day and fantastic to see so many students dressed as their favourite book characters on Friday.

Thank you everyone.

Don’t forget that we are still selling at The Book Fair until Wednesday Recess this week!

Books educate us, entertain us and enlighten us.

Primary students will enjoy “The Great Mystery Teacher Swap” (different teachers coming to their classes to read to them after Recess each day.)

K-2 students can look forward to  a Book Week Colouring/ Drawing Competition to be done in class library periods.
