Categories: News and Events Date: Jun 26, 2013 Title: Book Week 2013With Book Week fast approaching, 'Mrs Echidna' is visiting a number of schools in the area. As 'Book Week' is celebrated at different times during Third Term, a number of schools are receiving a visit.
31st July: The Year 3 curriculum for Term 3 includes 'writing and illustrating a story book'. Each year, a large private school at Bray Park includes a visit from 'Mrs Echidna' to extend their understanding of how books are written and illustrated. The children have already examined the book prior to the sessions, and use it as a springboard into further discussions.
August 21 & 23: Students from P to year 3 at a large private school in Strathpine will be the focus for a visit with 'Mrs Echidna'. The program presented varies with the age group of the children.
22nd August: 'Book Week' celebrations in many schools include writing competitions. What a great way to encourage budding young authors! Betty will be presenting Book Week Awards to students at Caboolture East State School.
