Book Week 2015

Book Week has certainly been an eventful week for the boys and staff. On Tuesday, two teams of Year 5 students competed in the Reader's Challenge at MLC against 14 other teams from various schools in Western Australia. The Red team; Banjo Harold, Emmanuel Radici and Joel Stocks, came equal 8th. The Scotch Blue team; Henry Capon, Fletcher O'Connell and Henry Vaughan came in equal 11th. Considering the week the boys had had as a lead up - Exhibition and a long weekend I feel this was a solid effort. They were also amongst the youngest competitors with most other teams being from Year 6. Our two year 4 reserves, M.K. Djauhari and James Cowan, were in the audience and are fired up for the competition next year.

The annual Book Week parade was held on Thursday afternoon. I was really proud of how the boys took up the challenge of using their creativity to dress up as their favourite book character using the resources available at home, through friends and family. The diversity of characters covering all genres was fabulous. The Parade was followed by a Pantomime presented by the staff of the Australian classic picture book Wombat Stew. The star of this was undoubtedly the Dingo, who had just a hint of a Canadian accent. Thank you to the staff for getting involved.
