At Dernancourt we have celebrated Book Week in a number of ways this year, your child may have been involved in some or all of the activities offered this week including; the Book Week dress up day and parade; attending the whole school incursion, purchasing and /or selling raffle tickets; participating in a range of learning experiences and lunchtime activities including a treasure hunt in the library as well as enjoying reading the many wonderful shortlisted books.
This year we 'opened' Book Week with the parade was held on Friday 16th August with the whole school gathering in the gym at 9.00am to showcase student costumes. This year’s theme, "Reading is my Secret Power", was an exciting one that enabled students to use their imagination by choosing to come dressed as a favourite book character or something associated with their favourite book.
It was wonderful to see so many of our students participating in the celebration, working with their families to plan their costumes. We certainly appreciate and acknowledge the effort our families contribute to making this a successful celebration.
To conclude our celebrations students attended the Book Week Incursion - "Big Dreams" on Friday 23rd August, the performance was a musical performance by Echelon Productions. Students were all engaged in the performance which was able to bring the books to life and celebrate the 2019 shortlisted books.
Thank you - Special thanks to our Book Week Committee Sue, Emma, Steph B., Pam, George and Kellie for their team work and commitment towards ensuring another successful of Book Week.
