Our Community - Book Week & Grandparents' Day

 

Bookweek, an initiative of the Children’s Book Council of Australia, takes place in schools every year in mid to late August. It revolves around a theme to do with books and reading. At Trinity Gardens School Bookweek involves various activities such as the traditional Bookweek parade, a special assembly, story-telling and visits from authors.

 

Grandparents’ Day

Grandparents’ Day is also annually incorporated into the Bookweek celebrations, when grandparents are invited to come to the school and enjoy the Bookweek parade and visit their grandchildren’s classrooms. This is always taken as a great opportunity to be amazed at the differences to learning in the 21st century from their days at school! A book display is set up in the Resource Centre over Bookweek and many grandparents choose to purchase books to donate to the Resource Centre. Grandparents are also invited to attend morning tea in the Gym.
