In Week 5 we celebrated Book Week at the Junior School. The Children’s Book Council of Australia’s theme was ‘Dreaming with eyes open…’ with artwork by Jasmine Seymour. We had visits from illustrator Mandy Foot with the R-2 classes, author Jane Jolly with the 3-6 classes, the performance ‘Story Quest’ for the R-2 classes, and in-class and lunchtime activities. On Wednesday we recognised Australian School Library Day and every Junior School student added why they love our library to this giant display!


To get ready for Book Week, the R-2 Library classes read the entire Early Childhood category then voted for our favourites – see the results!


On Wednesday the CBCA judges’ results were announced during the Book Week Parade! To view the announcement video and see winners’ reactions, click here!


Here are some photo highlights of the week – we hope you all enjoyed dreaming with your eyes open!

Thank you to all the support from the Saint Ignatius’ community to help everything go smoothly, particularly the Leadership team (Nic, Nerissa, Dave, Lisa, Anne, and Narelle), the Library team (Julia and Vanessa), Richie, Warren, Josie, Xenia, Michelle, and Alix.
