Paws for Books Book Fair

Posted on 19 Aug 2022

Paws for Books

Our school is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair on Monday the 22 of August until Friday the 26 of August. The fair will be held in the school library every morning from 8:30am until 9:00am and every afternoon from 3:00pm until 3:30pm (closes Friday morning).


Our Book Fair Family Event is on Wednesday from 3:00pm until 6:00pm and we would love to see you there!


You and your child will have the opportunity to explore a huge range of affordable books featuring characters and subjects kids love and want to read about. From newly released books and bestsellers to award-winning titles and perennial favourites.


This is also a great way for you to learn about and discuss your child's interests and every book sold benefits our school, adding resources to our library and classrooms.


Scholastic Book Fairs help us show students the wonder of reading. After all, when kids choose their own books, they will be more excited to read, and they will naturally read more!

CBCA book week

We will be celebrating Book Week at Neville Bonner on Tuesday 23 August. The theme this year is "Dreaming with eyes open”. On this day, students are encouraged to dress up/accessorize to reflect a book character with whom they connect. Due to the financial pressures on many families at this time, we encourage you to keep this a low-cost event and create costumes from household items.

Acknowledgement of Country - Earth Protectors

The Kindergarten Earth Protectors Learning Group have written their own Acknowledgement of Country which they shared with WIN TV in the 'School of the Week!' news segment.

School of the Week!

Posted on 16 Jun 2020

Did you see the children on WIN TV last week? Some of our Kindergarten children, senior choir and Year 6/5 children shared their insights, singing and design skills in relation to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander curriculum perspective. The WIN team was at school with us for about an hour and then showcased our school in their regular “School of The Week” news segment. Since its inception, Neville Bonner Primary School has enacted our deep commitment to ensuring that all children who learn at our school, will leave with a deeper appreciation and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, their significance for Australia and the impact these have had, and continue to have on the world. This work is evidenced in the symbolism in the built environment (eg the red gates contain many words from the Ngunnawal language, the artwork on the softfall of our fixed equipment areas are stunning designs by well-known Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists) , the naming of spaces and buildings using Ngunnawal language, and through our teaching and learning programmes. For the news segment the children sang our school song, ‘Yunggaballi’, written by Jamie Madsen in conjunction with Years 6/5 children school in 2013. The lyrics are available on our website if you are interested. Gadi means search for (knowledge), Murranga means hand (helping hands of your school) and of course Yunggaballi means sing! We sing our school song at every whole school Assembly along with our very own ‘Neville Bonner Matters’ song.
