Book week

Book Week is the longest running children's festival in Australia. Each year, many schools and public libraries from all over Australia spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators.Classroom teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians develop activities, offer competitions and tell stories relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading.

 At Niagara park Public School we celebrate book week during Term 3 by viewing and reading the Children's Book Council of Australia Short listed books, voting on our favourite, completing activities based on these books, joining in competitions and holding our annual Book Week book fair and character parade,  a highlight of our school year.

The Book Week 2019 theme is ‘Reading is my secret power'.

For more information, see the Children's Book Council of Australia's Book Week page. 

Book Fair

Every year at Niagara park Public School we hold a Scholastic Book Fair  in Term 3, week 3 during Education week. The open day we hold as part of our book fair is one of the highlights of our school year, with children (and teachers) dressing up in their favourite book character costumes and participating in a parade that promotes a love of literacy throughout our school and our community.

We look forward to meeting you at this exciting event.
