Fair Dinkum Incursion

9/09/2016

​As part of book week celebrations, students from Prep to Yr.4 participated in the Fair Dinkum incursion.

A Bunyip has taken over the billabong and all the locals in town, along with young Tilly (despite her best efforts), are unable to get rid of it.  When a stranger comes to town hopes are high that he might be able to help, but Andy the Swagman finds the bunyip too much even for his larrikin skills to contend with.  However, just as things seem hopeless, Andy and Tilly find that together they might just have the answer to defeating the Bunyip by digging deep into one of the country’s greatest resources – its books! 
Here, they soon discover the means to confront the bothersome creature and re-establish peace and happiness in the town.  But the Bunyip isn’t giving up without a fight…
 
Fair Dinkum was an action packed, fun filled adventure that encourages children of all ages to consider how significant books can be, not only as a means of entertainment and escape, but as a way of informing their understanding of the world around us.
