Literacy Week is fast approaching and we are positively bursting to celebrate reading and literacy in all its glory here at Bacchus Marsh Grammar!

This year has again been challenging, but it will be fabulous to shine a light on the wonderful ways in which reading can enhance the lives of our students and, indeed, ourselves.

We have some amazing guest speakers joining us to inspire the students to embrace literacy and follow their dreams.  These speakers are always well-received and highly anticipated by our students.

There will be opportunities to participate in fun activities – some individual, some in teams, but all engaging and fun.  There are also writing and poetry competition for students to enter if they are keen to tap into their creative side!

Literacy Dress Up Day is for the whole school and will take place on Thursday 2nd September.  The theme this year is “Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds”, which pretty much means the options are endless.  We can’t wait to see the students all dressed up and enjoy the excitement of the day.  Remember, there is absolutely no need to spend money on a costume – ask children to get creative with what they have at home.

Don’t forget the Reading Decathlon Challenge, which is open to all students from Prep to 12. We would love to see lots of entries for this challenge – perhaps you could do the Family Photo event together or just enjoy some family reading time over the coming days.

We can’t wait to share the week with our wonderful students.
