St Martin’s celebrates Book Week

BOOK WEEK CELEBRATIONS: Hamish dresses up as Rusty Rivets and Bree and Elouise both are Elsa from the film Frozen for the day during Book Week celebrations at St Martin's Kindergarten.

ST Martin’s Kindergarten was among many Limestone Coast education sites which have recently celebrated Book Week.

Each year since 1945, Children’s Book Council of Australia has brought children and books together across Australia through its Book Week celebrations.

Schools and public libraries are encouraged to spend one week celebrating books and Australian children’s authors and illustrators.

Classroom teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians create colourful displays, develop activities, run competitions and tell stories relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading.

This year’s theme was curious creatures, wild minds.
