Book Week 2019

Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.

Anna Quindlen

On Wednesday 28 August the morning started with much excitement and energy as children young and old came dressed as their favourite book character for Book Week 2019.

Principal Paul came as Principal Trunchbull who is the tyrannical principal of the elementary school from the Roald Dahl book, Matilda. In the book, Dahl describes Trunchbull as looking, “more like an eccentric and rather bloodthirsty follower of the stag-hounds than the [principal] of a nice school for children.” Not at all how our children would describe Principal Paul either! Although I am sure he enjoyed the theatrics that his character provided!

The children thoroughly enjoyed the parade and showing off their costumes and characters to the crowd of parents and staff that assembled.

The pop-up book shop provided by Beaufort Street Books was a wonderful addition to the day and one that was enjoyed by students and parents alike. You can still purchase from the Beaufort Street Books Term 3 Book Catalogue online through this link www.beaufortstreetbooks.com.au.

Check out some of the awesome photos captured of the morning.

“One of the things that has been wonderful about the Bold Park Community School is its opportunity to respond to the needs that are specific to the child ... it is reassuring when a school can deliver at a pace and style that is respectful of the individual's differences and needs AND to demonstrate the relevance of curriculum issues into the application for real life and living.”
