Junior School girls joined over 500,000 children across Australia for National Simultaneous Storytime on Wednesday 25 May, 2016. Ms Roslyn Mahony, Head of Junior School, read Hattie Helps Out by Jane Godwin and Davina Bell to Years Kindergarten to 4 in The Independent Theatre.
National Simultaneous Storytime promotes the value of reading and literacy. The annual campaign, now in its 16th year, celebrates the value and fun of books and encourages storytime activities. Held by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), National Simultaneous Storytime addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum.
This week Years 5 and 6 had a chance to demonstrate their critical thinking and problem-solving abilities to teachers, peers and parents as part of their Spectacular STEM Showcase.
If you could choose just one book for your ideal bookshelf, what would it be, and why? It is a question that has absorbed students in Years 3 to 6 during Library studies this term.
“Creative’, ‘inspiring’, ‘exciting’ and ‘fantastic’ were just some of the words our Year 5 girls used to describe their latest STEM challenge.
