Each year since 1945, the Children’s Book Council of Australia has brought children and books together across Australia through CBCA Book Week. During this time, schools and public libraries spend one glorious week celebrating books and Australian children’s authors and illustrators. The theme this year is ‘Dreaming With Eyes Open.’
To celebrate Book Week, the Library is offering students of Year 7 a ‘Reader’s Pick.’ Students can either nominate their favourite book or a book that they would like to read. The Library will then purchase any nominated books that are not in the Library collection.

If you have any questions regarding this practice test, please contact either Ms Lynsey Porter, Director of Curriculum, Ms Gabrielle Bransby, Assistant Director of Junior School/Curriculum, or Mr David Parnell, Head of Learning Support.
