Peak School Book Day

Thursday 11th April 2019

Yes, it's Book Day at Peak School, 2019!!!!

It's that time of year when children deliberate over which costume to make while parents panic about time and materials and crafting skills. Remember it always comes together in the end!

We are very excited for the things that we have planned for this Book Day and the days leading up to it. Our greatest joy in the Library is connecting readers to books, and we've planned our events with this at the centre of all we will be doing. We hope you enjoy the activities and events, but most of all we hope that there will be a lot more books read this Book Day!

If you need to contact us, email us at or you can call the library on 2849 8522.

Happy Reading!
The Peak Library Team

This book changed my life. A Peak School Documentary.

Thursday, April 11th, 1pm

The Hall, Peak School

Calling all Peak School readers!!!!

We are creating an original Peak School documentary "This book changed my life."

We need you to choose a book that holds a special meaning, or a message, or even a memory for you. Once you have decided on your book, submit a short movie clip of you telling us about your book choice. Why you chose the book and it's significance to you. The video clip should be no longer than a minute and in a format we can use. Generally all smart phone video options should be compatible as long as you film landscape so that it can fit the editing format.

All through the week of 1st-4th of April we will also be inviting students, to record interviews during their library lessons and at lunchtime.

We will then put as many of the interviews as possible together to make a documentary. This documentary will have it's premiere on Book Day at lunchtime in the hall.

Please send all your entries to It's going to be a very special movie and below is a small sample of what you can do...

The 2019 Peak School Door Challenge

We want to see every classroom door transformed into the cover of a book. This is a school wide challenge and one class will win a pizza lunch on Book Day 11th April. The creation of the door book cover must involve the whole class and it must be completed by the end of school on Monday 8th April.

Once the winning class has been decided we will let everyone know on Wednesday 10th April, so that the winners can be prepared for their pizza lunch the next day - Book Day!

Here are some examples to inspire you...
