Book Week is a much loved annual event for schools on the South Coast and this year's regional NSW lockdown hasn't stopped students and teachers from celebrating.
Many local schools held their Book Week parades virtually, sporting costumes suited to this year's theme of New Worlds, Old Worlds and Other Worlds.
Bomaderry Public School students also celebrated by holding a writing competition titled 'Be an Author', encouraging students to write and illustrate their own book.
Teacher librarion Angela Urquhart also joined Zoom classes to discuss the Children's Book Council of Australia short-listed titles.
Since 1945, the Children's Book Council of Australia has brought children and books together across Australia through Book Week.
This year's Book Week is running from August 21 to 27. Take a look at the costumes from students and teachers in our gallery!
