The week began with a visit from author/illustrator team Andrew Hansen and Jessica Roberts who shared the inspiration behind their series, Bab Sharkey and the Animal Mummies, with Years 2 to 5. Andrew’s hilarious read-aloud style and Jessica’s quirky illustration demonstration were a big hit with the boys. Later in the week author/illustrator Kylie Dunstan shared her creative techniques with Preprep, Prep and Year 1 classes with the boys producing their own emotion drawings during her sessions. Boys were immersed in the shortlisted titles during Library lessons building their literacy skills and expanding their reading experience. 

Additionally, all week the Library was buzzing with scavenger hunts, quiz games and book-themed activities. The highlight was the Book Week dress up morning and Assembly. A magnificent range of book characters, including Hogwarts-inspired Junior School staff, paraded to Middleton Theatre for an exciting and fun Assembly. We were also impressed with the Junior School Staff who went all out with their Harry Potter theme dress-ups. Congratulations to our competition winners and to all boys and staff for their enthusiasm in sharing the joy of reading. Our secret power has been unleashed!
