Books Books and more Books!

We have some very exciting things happening and it all starts 24th November.

Scholastic Book Fair is arriving Tuesday 24 November and students will have a turn coming in and creating those all important Wish Lists, from 24 to 27 November so keep an eye out for them in your child’s school bag. Great Christmas present ideas but also pop in and come and take a look yourself.

The Jungle Themed Scholastic Book Fair will be open to parents every day after school (3:00pm – 4:00pm) from 24 November to 3 December and will be open every morning before school (8:30am – 9:00am) 25 November to 4 December.

Please bring your own Shopping Bag to our Book Fair as we are a plastic free fair.

Late night Shopping – Thursday 26 November We are running a late evening this year, Thursday 26 November 4:00pm until 8:00pm so you can come by yourself and take a quiet look around, whilst no little eyes are watching.

Helpers and support – to make all this happen we need your help. Can you spare an hour or two to help with book sales, help with wish lists and keep the fair running smoothly? Then please sign up for a time (or times) that work for you. Click here to sign up or contact Jo Apperley ([email protected]).

Book Week 2020 – For the Love of Reading

CBS Book week is on Monday 30 November to Friday 4 December. We have lots of New Zealand authors and New Zealand special guests coming to visit our students this exciting week to promote a love of reading.

Special Friends and Grandparents visits will be taking place on the morning of Thursday 3 December. Great opportunity to let our school community special friends and Grandparents come to school and see our students in class, share their learning, share a book and pay a visit to our Scholastic Book Fair. We also have a few special guests visiting who would love to see them too – Suzy Cato and Peter Gilderdale. We will have tea and coffee on offer also in the Performing Arts Room (next to the Scholastic Book Fair).

Student and Staff Book Parade 2020 is back by popular demand and will be taking place the morning of Friday 4 December, hopefully on the field, weather permitting.

For more information such as times, events, photos, and much more please refer to our Parents Book Week and Scholastic Fair Website. Click here.

School Library Books are being gathered back for the summer starting 18 November. Students will no longer be able to issue books from Monday 16 November. Thank you for your support.

Happy Reading!

Kind regards

Jo Apperley and CBS Book Week Team
