Library borrowing has commenced this week .
The Preps enjoyed their first visit and are quickly learning how we leave the Library quietly and ready to move back to the classroom.
Mrs. McPherson has been opening the Library during the second half of lunchtime on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. It’s an opportunity for those children who want to have some quiet reading time or to share books with others. Thank you Mrs. McPherson.
Please fill in our Library Survey by Friday 4th December. Parents are welcome to complete the survey too.
Corinne Fenton’s picture book “Little Dog and the Christmas Wish”, illustrated by Robin Cowcher, published by Black Dog Books (an imprint of Walker Books) was shortlisted for this year’s Crichton Award and has been chosen as the theme for this year’s Myer’s Christmas Windows.
It’s great to see at this time of the year our students being regular readers at home. Modelling the pleasure of reading both at school and also at home is vital for a child’s development in positive attitudes towards reading.
“Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift.” Kate DiCamillo
TODAY WE CELEBRATED THE BEGINNING OF BOOK WEEK.
All grades busily and creatively participated in a number of different art activities linked to some of the shortlisted books.
Our Library and Art monitors have done a great job in producing a display of their interpretation of the theme of Book Week this year, BOOKS LIGHT UP OUR WORLD.
GREAT DISPLAY…WELL DONE GIRLS!
