St James the Apostle School's students in costume for book week.19 August 2019

It was superpower central at St James the Apostle School, Hoppers Crossing North, as students and staff all got into the spirit of this year’s Book Week theme: Reading is my Secret Power.

Each year level at St James the Apostle learned a superhero song as part of the much-loved Book Week costume parade. The Year 6 group went even further, dressing as Ghostbusters as part of their performance. Some students and teachers were also keen to create their own superheroes with special reading powers, including Double Denim Decoder and the Comprehension Squad. Everyone had a blast, showing off their amazing powers and sharing their love of reading.

The Children’s Book Council of Australia has been promoting the work of Australian authors and illustrators for over 70 years. The 2019 Book of the Year Awards were announced last Friday.
