Parent’s of primary school aged children, past and present, remember Book Week only too well – frantically cobbling together costumes for their little ones to wear to school for the annual Book Week parade.
The idea is to wear a costume of your favourite book character but, personally, remembering Book Week days and parades past, any kind of costume will do.
Bobin Public School will be celebrating Book Week 2018 in a much larger way. You see, they are not only celebrating books that other people have written, but are launching their very own book: What can’t be seen can exist.
Students have been working with local published author, Michael Davies in a novel writing project, in which they have written a group novel. The book is now published and will be launched to open the school’s Book Week celebrations on Tuesday, August 21.
The fun will run from 10am to 2pm, with the Book Week parade and book launch followed by morning tea. The P and C are providing soup and sausage sandwiches for lunch.
“Michael will be present at the launch and he and the students will be available to sign the finished product,” a school spokesperson said.
“We will also have a mini market on the day with our novel, various other books and a variety of other products available for sale.”
Michael Davies will be having his own market stall, as will local author of children’s books, Maureen Larter. Other stalls will sell local produce and other small items.
Bobin Public School invites the public to help them celebrate the launch of their novel, and join in their Book Week fun. The school is at 2512 Bulga Road, Bobin.
