About Book Week
From Kathy, Librarian
The Children’s Book Council of Australia has been operating for over 70 years. Their aim is to engage and encourage young Australians to enjoy and appreciate literature. North Melbourne Primary School has been an enthusiastic supporter of the Council for many years.
The Awards for Children’s Book Of The Year are recognised as being one of the most important literary awards in the country. The books are judged on both their literary and artistic content. The Children’s Book Council website is well worth a look.
Students are well aware that the books in the Library with the “Gold Sticker” will be well worth a look.
Many of our students consider Book Week and the Parade a highlight of the school year. This year the costumes were outstanding.
