We are proud to be partnering with an organisation that brings quality educational productions into Primary Schools, exploring the CBCA Children’s Book Week themes and promoting literature and the joy of reading in an interactive, fun and engaging way
CBCA Chair, Professor Margot Hillel OAM.

It was the best incursion I have been to. The layout, the actions, getting the students moving mid performance was a great idea. The message was invaluable, I have changed my lesson structure around to incorporate the positive messages. Thank you!

The 2020 Book Week in Schools Virtual Incursion THE GREATEST DISCOVERY! partners with The Children's Book Council of Australia to celebrate the 2020 theme CURIOUS CREATURES, WILD MINDS

Captured Live-on-Film our Book Week in Schools Virtual Incursion is educational and interactive for both students and teachers to be engaged throughout.
The performance is captured live-on-film with multi-cameras and in high definition, meaning everyone watching will be doing so from the best seat in the house.
The live-on-film performance will include interactive segments where there will be ‘Pause Zones’ to answer quizzes, complete activities, physical challenges and have guided discussions to dig deep and embed the key learning points while keeping students active and engaged - while also having great fun!
Your whole school can be involved whether having a large group viewing, classroom by classroom sessions, or even with individual students included from home.

For further learning and student interaction there will be a post-performance Q&A which will provide your students with the opportunity to explore some of the key questions connected to the learning points. Additionally, there will be an opportunity for your students to ask questions online with our actors and creative team.

What’s in the box? That’s the question on everybody’s lips when students bring to school something they’ve uncovered that has been put in a storage box – in a cupboard, in the shed, at the back of an old second hand store… Both Claire and Jonno believe they have found something that is sure to be the winner of The Greatest Discovery on the day. Is it Jonno whose imagination has run wild or Claire, who has an incredible story to tell, who will win the day? Get ready to cheer, sing, dance and get involved as these two lovable characters go head to head and everyone rushes along with them towards the moment we hear the announcement of who has made The Greatest Discovery!

The Greatest Discovery is a highly interactive incursion where the entire audience will together explore the very best Australian children’s books and the 2020 CBCA Book Week theme: CURIOUS CREATURES, WILD MINDS. With a selection of the CBCA 2020 Short Listed Books, encouraging students to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner and reinforcing the idea of inclusivity and celebration of endeavour rather than competitive outcomes.

With your own individual school login, the live-on-film performance will be available for your whole school to watch on the date of your scheduled incursion.

The Virtual Incursion program package will also include a range of hands-on educational tools with online interactive games, classroom and home-based activities, and teacher resources as a tool to extend the learning. These tools are available to access for the rest of the school year to provide continued learning at school or at home.

There are versions of the show specifically for junior and senior audiences as well as a general show. The senior version of the show includes a particular short listed book appropriate to years 5 and 6.

The entire show was brilliant, the cast was amazing and so engaging for the students. The students really took to the stories and it had a great message. Awesome presenters, the best so far!

I've seen many different companies and Book Week shows over the years, but your company does it the best (in every way)!
Carlton Public School

This program is more than brilliant performances by passionate crew; it is a life line and a safety vest that all school should get a hold of and offer students to equip them as they journey through life in what can be an unkind world - from their own low

I love all the professional contact we have in preparation for our visiting show from Perform! education. Everything is organised so very well. On the day of the show, the performers always arrive in plenty of time to set up, stick to the time allocated a
