From 17-23 August 2019 we celebrate CBCA Book Week and in 2019 Terang College plans to celebrate as a whole school (P-12).
Throughout the year, the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) works in partnership with authors, illustrators, publishers, booksellers and other organisations in the children’s book world to bring images and stories into the hearts and minds of children and adults.
The CBCA is a not for profit, volunteer run organisation that aims to engage the community with literature for young Australians.
Established in 1945, the CBCA was founded at a time when Australian children’s books were few, and Australian authors and illustrators were virtually unknown. In 1946 the CBCA established annual book awards to promote Australian children’s books of outstanding literary and artistic quality. These awards are now the most influential and highly respected in Australia.
The CBCA Book of the Year Awards Winner and Honour Books will be announced on Friday 16 August and CBCA Book Week commences the following day. Across Australia, the CBCA brings children and books together to celebrate CBCA Book Week.
The theme of this year’s Book Week is “Reading is my Super Power!”
As usual the theme allows for children to be able to dress up as what-ever they would like to.
Please do not rush out and spend lots of money on costuming for this day. I am sure that many of you have costumes or clothing at home that would be appropriate.
The Book Week Parade will be Wednesday August 21st at the 5-12 Assembly Hall.
More exciting details to come.
