Book Week

This coming week 20th – 24th of August is Book Week . The theme this year is “Find Your Treasure,” and we have been busy in the libraries with activities to celebrate. The WALEC reading pit has been transformed into a tropical island and pirate ship, while in the LRC all month we have had the teachers’ favourite books on display with students attempting to guess which teacher matches which book. The correct answers will be revealed at the end of this week. Parents are more than welcome to come and view both displays and maybe discuss their favourite books with their children.
The Book Fair will be open everyday next week, before and after school, with credit card facilities only, NO CASH. We receive funds from the sale of books to purchase new books for our libraries.
Book Week Dress Up Parade – Friday 24th August  9.30 am  (following Assembly outside the WALEC)
This year we are, along with all other schools in Warwick, encouraging students to dress to the theme of “Find Your Treasure.”
Suggestions for costumes could be: Pirates, kings, queens, pharaoh, fairies or other fairytale characters that fit with this theme. Keeping in mind that treasure does not necessarily have to have a monetary value. It would be great if the students could bring the book that matches the character. This is a day to celebrate a love of literature!
