Book Week 2022

Dressing up for Book Week

Staff and students got into the spirit of Book Week by dressing as their favourite book characters on Friday 26 August.

Book Week, which is organised by the Children’s Book Council of Australia, is a national celebration of books and Australian children’s authors and illustrators. The theme for Book Week 2022 was ‘Dreaming with eyes open…’.

A range of activities were held in the Learning Commons at each campus during the week, but the most popular activity was the dress up day on Friday.

While there were prizes for the best dressed staff and students at each campus, the College would like to congratulate all who got involved.

Some Book Week photos are available in the gallery below.

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop made the statement: “We are but travellers here, so while we are here we should do as much good as we can and live in peace with each other.”

With this in mind, the College respectfully acknowledges the Ngunnawal people who are the Traditional Custodians and First People of the land on which we gather each day. The College also pays its respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, and any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples living and working in the MacKillop community.
