THE GREATEST DISCOVERY...
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 ‘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 combines a love of reading and books with a celebration of diversity and competition! Watch a selection of The CBCA Shortlisted Books of 2020 come to life, encouraging students to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner and reinforcing the idea of inclusiveness and celebration of endeavor rather than competitive results.
The Greatest Discovery is a highly interactive incursion where the entire audience will together explore the very best Australian children’s books and The CBCA Book Week theme for 2020: CURIOUS CREATURES, WILD MINDS.
Book Week in Schools includes exciting elements of Olympic history, along with a selection of The CBCA 2020 Shortlisted Books, encouraging students to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner and reinforcing the idea of inclusiveness and celebration of endeavour rather than competition outcomes.

2020 SHORTLISTED BOOKS
Our Book Week performances are seen by over 250,000 Primary School students every year!
Check out what the teachers are saying about our last production:
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!

Perform Education Virtual Incursion
Due to COVID-19 government imposed restrictions, Perform Education will be offering VIRTUAL INCURSIONS during 2020!
Our performances are captured live-on-film with multi-cameras and in high definition - so everyone watches from the best seat in the house. The performance also includes interactive segments with questions, activities and guided discussions, allowing your students to dig deep into the key learning points while being active, engaged and having fun!
After the performance you can watch a selection of Q&A videos, and also schedule a live-stream chat with our performers and creatives, enabling your students to answer questions and be heard. Included in the online educational portal is a trove of digital resources and games that can be accessed either from school or home all year so the fun doesn't stop.
Hosting a Perform Education Virtual Incursion means your whole school can be involved whether having a large group viewing, classroom by classroom sessions, or watching individually from home.
Students will watch, interact and have fun with the virtual performance
