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.
Year 6 students learnt the art of being active listeners as part of their training to lead Wenona’s Junior School peer support program.
Wenona teachers began Term 2 with a professional development day that explored ways to build a culture of reflection and help students actively seek feedback.
Our Year 6 prefects tell us how the Junior School students acknowledged Harmony Day—the celebration of diversity and culture in Australia.
