Book Week @ KPS
What a fantastic week it has been at Kilsyth Primary School this week. We have seen pirates and princesses, dragons and doctors, wizards and Wallys... all in the name of encouraging reading as we partipated in the Children's Book Council of Australia Book Week.
On Tuesday morning we celebrated our passions for reading with a dress up day and Book Week parade. This was once again a fabulous event with such a great response from students and staff putting a huge effort and thought into their costumes. Thanks to all the parents and carers who helped make these costumes possible and to those who were able to come along and cheer on the parade. The day continued on Tuesday with students working in mulit-level Tribes teams to take part in a special day of literacy and reading based challenges and learning activities.
If you have walked through any of our school buildings this week you will have noticed the wonderful makeover our doorways are sporting. So much effort has been put in by our students to design, plan and decorate their classroom doorways to reflect one of the CBCA Book of the Year Award nominated books. We have some fantastic creative people in our school.
Bedtime stories are a big part of reading in my family, and I hope in yours too. The week culminated today in our Pyjama Day with staff and students alike arriving at school in the PJs with their favourite bedtime story.
Thank you so much to all staff and students for working together so well to make this day such a success and especially to Ms Lisa Hubbard for taking in the lead and pulling the program for the week together. It has been a huge team effort, capably led and resulting in a wonderful week that will last in memories for a long time.
