Book Week was postponed this year till October 17-23 and we all had rethink how to celebrate.
The CBCA announced the winners via video which lets children tell us why reading is important and also lets authors tell you about their inspiration.
“In a truly exceptional year, the Children’s Book Council of Australia is proud to celebrate the very best of Australian children’s and young adult literature and recognise the power of books and reading to help young people find solace and reassurance during times of uncertainty.”
At Clonard, our ASPIRE leaders organised successful online quizzes and the Book Week parade which we were able to hold outside (thank you weather). Students created bookmarks and also had their photos taken with our fabulous Reading Angel wings. We also displayed the winning and shortlisted books.
Book Week prevailed over COVID-19.
