This week marks the launch of the DCIS World Book Week. Our Teachers and Book Fair Committee have been busy organising an array of book-related activities and class teachers have already shared photos from the Extreme Reading Challenge on their class blogs.
This year’s World Book Week will be as fun-packed as ever, creating exciting learning opportunities linked to literacy and books. As 2016 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of the well-known playwright, William Shakespeare, so too will this year’s Book Week. DCIS students will take part in a range of different activities linked to one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, ‘The Tempest’.
Alongside this, members of the SLT will be popping into classes to share a book and students across the school will be taking part in paired and group reading sessions.
Our Library have also organised for a Book Sale by C & E Associates and each class has an allocated time to come view and purchase books:
- Lower primary students should bring their money in a well-marked envelope so any change due can be sent back safely
- The average price of the books sold will be between $7.00 - $24.00
- Cheques are to be made out directly to C & E Associates
