Next week Navigator College and many public libraries and schools around Australia will be celebrating the 72th Book Week, the longest running children’s festival in Australia.

This year’s theme is ‘Escape to everywhere’.

A list of all shortlisted books by the Children’s Book Council of Australia can be found on

All Book Week books are displayed in the Navigator Resource Centre and will be the focus of next week’s library visits. Students are invited to engage in the lunchtime activities offered in the library and share the stories to highlight the joy and importance of reading.
