Book Week, Book Fair and Costume Parade!

Our Book Week theme this year is ‘Curious Minds’. We are focusing on encouraging creativity, enquiring in learning and an interest in both fiction and non-fiction books. Book Week will run from today Monday, 14 September to Friday, 18 September at the Primary School Campus.

This term as we celebrate “all things books” for Book Week, we have many exciting opportunities for our children to develop their life-long love of books.

Our online Book Fair is live! We are excited at the range of classic and Christian literature that will be available through our supplier. Every order from our virtual book fair could win you $100 in free books! Not only that but you’ll also help raise vital funds for our College Library. There is a huge range of books for everyone, so head on over to www.onlinebookfair.com.au to check out all the amazing books on offer. You can purchase through the online store and the books will be delivered straight to your home address. Thank you for supporting Brisbane Christian College in this fundraiser.

The Costume Parade is set for the last day of Term 3 on Friday, 18 September 2020. We encourage you to help your child create a costume that is improvised from items that you have on hand. Our judges will be looking for creativity!

We are not expecting anyone to spend money on new costumes and we hope that children can participate in this event in a spirit of fun and mutual enjoyment without focusing on being competitive.

Sadly, we are unable to have parents, caregivers or friends on campus this year for our Costume Parade but be assured that we will post as many photos as possible!

We are looking forward to encouraging your children to participate in these and other activities, as we seek to promote an enjoyment and passion for learning and reading.

Salisbury Rotary Club Coffee Gift Voucher Project

The Rotary Club of Salisbury came by to say “thanks” to our staff for all the amazing work we do as local front-line workers. They were so generous to give out free coffee vouchers to our staff as a show of support and thanks. We would like to thank The Rotary Club of Salisbury and the local businesses that were a part of this project for their generosity. We certainly will enjoy a free cup of coffee. Below is more about the project:

The purpose of this project is to say thank you to our local COVID-19 front-line workers, commencing with local education staff in September. It is safe to assume that the education sector is the largest employer in our local area – an assumption which is borne out by the fact that the six Primary Schools and one Secondary School employ over 400 staff.

So how do we say “thanks” to over 400 COVID-19 front-line workers for the wonderful and inspiring work that they are doing on our behalf?

– We approach coffee shops in the area to provide coffee at a discounted price. The first three we approached, namely Hedge Expresso, Reload Expresso Bar and Dakana Coffee Café did not hesitate to say “yes”.
– We approach local businesses to sponsor the cost of the coffees. And again, the first three that we approached, namely Ballistic Beer, Cooper Reeves Chartered Accountants and Books & Boxes said, “Yes, we want to come on board.”
– We approach a printer, Peter Dunn, an Honorary Member of our Rotary Club, whose printing business 3D Printing prints 500 coffee gift vouchers gratis.
– We distribute the coffee gift vouchers via the School Principals who all very graciously accepted the vouchers on behalf of all of the workers in their schools: teachers, administration staff and cleaning/gardening staff.

The Rotary Club of Salisbury says “thanks” on behalf of the Salisbury and surrounding communities to our local education heroes with the small gift of a coffee voucher, and hope that you are able to sit down, relax for a few minutes and enjoy a nice cup of coffee on us.
