The First Annual Book 'Ozcars'
We decided to add a touch of Hollywood glamour to World Book Day by hosting the first annual Book 'Ozcars'. We suggested nominees for categories of Best Author, Character, Fiction and Non Fiction groups fpr the age ranges across our school. The most popular suggestions became the short list of nominees in each category. Children then voted for their winners.
On Wednesday 4th March the red carpet was rolled out and we donned our glad rags for the glitzy awards ceremony. Children answered questions from members of the press while being 'papped' on the red caroet before entering the hall to find out who the big winners of the afternoon were.
The School Council acted as our presenters, handing out trophies and keeping the crowd entertained.
Guests were also treated to a VIP Access All Areas Pass to our new school library and were allowed to take home their first book.
After the awards ceremony, guests were given an exclusive 'Ozcars' goody bag which special treats in to remind them of our special day.
