Book Week is one of our most favorite times of the year at St Ambrose.
It’s a chance to explore so many new and interesting books and express our love for reading.
The annual Book Parade will be held on Monday 27th August at 9:15am – students and staff are encouraged to come to school on that day dressed as something that represents a book they love or find interesting. There will be class prizes for Best Dressed!
The costume might be influenced by a theme from a book or it might be in keeping with the theme established by the Children’s Book Council of Australia for 2018 : Find Your Treasure or it could be a character from a book or even an Author.
Our Scholastic Book Fair will also commence on this day. Each year we transform the Library into a Book Fair and each class is allocated a time to come with their class to look and/or purchase books.

The Scholastic Book Fair is our biggest fundraiser for the Library so any purchases you make translate into Scholastic Reward Points that our Friends of St Ambrose Library (FOSAL) Team can then spend on new books for all of our students to enjoy. Having said all of that, please be reassured that purchasing books is entirely optional.
