Book Week Dress up: Wednesday 21 August  >> Dress up as your favourite book character, or a costume inspired from the Book Week theme - Reading is My Secret Power

On this morning students will parade their costumes on the coloured squares, and the library will be open where you can view the 2019 shortlisted and winning books.

Students will celebrate Book Week in the class room, the art room, and during library sessions where they will have an opportunity to read all the shortlisted and winning books. An author/illustrator will also visit us.

Library at Lunchtimes

The Library will continue to be open each Tuesday and Wednesday at Lunchtime in term 3.  This is for quiet reading only.  Students can read books from the library or bring books from home.

Classic Collection

The Students have been loving our new Classic Collections from Scholastic.  There's a reason they've been around so long. They're just great stories, no matter how old you are or how long its's been since they were written. What's your favourite Classic Story?
