BOOK WEEK AND BOOK FAIR

We will be celebrating Book Week at William Carey next week!

(Week 3)

The theme for this year is :-

“Books Light up Our World”

Books light up our world in so many ways, don”t they. They enable us to travel without leaving our homes and to escape into worlds of fantasy and adventure.

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.

 

 

 

BOOK FAIR will be arriving on Wednesday Afternoon of Week 3 and leaving on Wednesday of Week 4

Buying will be from 8 a.m.until 4 pm Friday 23rd, Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th . On Wednesday 28th books will be on sale from 8 a.m until 9 a.m.

It’s all about……..Seuss!

The school is buzzing and everything is …“Seuss”. Have you bought your tickets for “Seussical” yet? Just a reminder that we have many of Dr Seuss’ books in our library . You’ll find them in a marked box in our Junior Fiction section. Come in and take a look! (Oh and don’t miss the sensational “Seussical the musical”! You’ll see lots of colourful sets and familiar characters.) It’s going to be amazing!

Tickets are on sale at the Uniform Shop.
