From the Library Term 2 Week 3

Citizenship Committee in the Library

This year the Citizenship Committee is helping in the library on a regular basis. The Committee consists of year 6 and 7 students: Avani, Michaela, Mary, Izzy and Lilly. 

The Committee will be: 

  • Helping with the Scholastic Book club orders and deliveries;
  • Purchasing books for the library with book club rewards;
  • Meeting with book retailers to hear about new books and choose some for the library; and
  • Promoting the Premiers Reading Challenge. 

National Simultaneous Storytime

Next Wednesday a number of our classes are participating in National Simultaneous Storytime. This event is held annually around Australia and the world. Last year there were 129700 children reading the same book simultaneously. This year the book is being read by astronaut Dr Shannon Walker from the International Space Station!

To help celebrate National Simultaneous Storytime the library is holding a competition with a number of prizes to be won. To enter students need to colour in, design or draw a rocket or spaceship. Entries close Wednesday Week 5 and winners will be announced on the Friday. 

Yours in reading,

Sophie and Nicole
