Book Day 2017 was fantastic! There were brilliant costumes, activities, Book Fair, displays … it was all happening at PCS!
Our Prep to Year 4 students enjoyed terrific talks by Lost Sheep author Andrew McDonough, and the Boost Drama students gave a great performance of a play based on his book Peter the Fisherman. Students from Years 5 to 11 heard from author John Heffernan, and participated in a variety of activities throughout the day. Year 7 and Year 8 students had worked really hard to put on a Book Expo which was visited by Junior School students.
A highlight of Book Day each year is our Book Parade, where we get to see our students in some amazing book themed outfits. This year, a special part of the Book Parade was a thank you to Mrs Helen Thompson, who has done amazing things with Book Day at PCS for almost 25 years, and has enjoyed her last Book Week this year before retiring.
We enjoyed a special PowerPoint presentation with some great photos of some of the many Book Days over the years. Mrs Thompson will be very missed next year, but we are all excited for her and Mr Thompson as they retire on to some new and exciting adventures together, and we pray God’s continued blessings over their lives.
Thank you to everyone who participated in Book Day this year and to those who contributed to our Book Fair and cake sale. We think it was a huge success and lots of fun! We look forward to doing it all again with you next year.
Mrs Melinda Brinks and Mrs Bethany Evans
