Book Week 2014

One World, Many Stories

Welcome Back With Book Week

We will be celebrating Book Week immediately after the vacation, from April 28 to May 2, so for an introduction to the exciting activities and events we've planned across the school, check out the promotional video made by Year 5 students, as part of their How We Express Ourselves media unit.

Book Week Website

Everything you need to know about Book Week activities and competitions is on the Book Week 2014 website. We are relying on you to access this website every day with your students to ensure the success of Book Week. Generally, activities will be run during students' break times, so the impact on class teaching should be minimal.

A general overview of the events and activities is introduced in the video below. Thanks to everyone who is contributing towards this year's Book Week celebrations.

Character Costume Parade

Please remind students that our Character Costume Parade will be run during block 1 on Friday, May 2 so we look forward to once again seeing lots of amazing and creative costumes. Our theme this year is One World, Many Stories so our focus is on recognising diversity in terms of cultural and individual identity, but at the same time making connections with each other. So costumes could be based on characters we identify with because of their culture, background or personality.

Throughout May

During Book Week we will launch The Library Project Reading Challenge, with those taking part challenging themselves to read a certain number of books in one month (May). Participants will be sponsored by family and friends and the money raised will go to The Library Project to build a Reading Room in a local primary school in Guangdong, China. Further details will be explained during Book Week.
