We have just finished my favourite week of the Library year – Book Week. This is a time to celebrate Australian authors and illustrators for children. The Childrens’ Book Council of Australia awards prizes for the best books of the year. This year the Early Childhood category was won by Mr Huff by Anna Walker a beautiful book about a boy having a bad day with Mr Huff following him around and getting him down. Other winners include Once by Morris Gleitzman and Flight by Armin Greder.
At Kew PS we celebrated the week with a visit from storyteller, Andy Wright. Andy entertained the students with stories from his childhood and taught them the meaning of the Haka, which they then performed.
Of course we finished the week with the dress up parade. It is always so great to see the costumes the students create. Thank you parents for your hard work.
Book week is one week a year – at Kew we want the students to enjoy quality literature every week of the year. Keep reading!!
