To celebrate the theme for Book Week 2017, "Escape to Everywhere" the CBCA SA Branch held a dinner to escape to the fantasy world of Disconia, where disco never died and Eurovision is hailed by all. The dinner was held at "The Maylands Hotel" on Friday, August 25th.
SA Older Readers judge, Katharine England talked to the audience about the new judging processes. Our hosts for the night were Disconians, "Sacha and Maurice" (Lisa and Ben from "Little Big Parrots") who gave us a wonderful night of activities. Each table had to invent a National Anthem and flag for Disconia using 3 random words handed out by the hosts. There was a "Guess the country that belonged to the Eurovision song" competition, highlighting a very poor knowledge of Eurovision in the audience!
Thank you to all our sponsors ( Scholastic and Australian Standing Orders ) for donating the wonderful books and prizes for the raffles and competition winners.
