From the Library Term 2 Week 6

On Wednesday 25 May, many of our classes participated in National Simultaneous Storytime. This event is held annually with children around the world reading the same book at the same time.

This year it’s estimated that over 2 million people simultaneously read Family Tree by Josh Pyke. Some of our classes read the book, others listened to Josh read it and then sing, some listened to Australian Children’s Laureate, Gabrielle Wang, read the story, while others viewed an AUSLAN version. After reading the story, classes participated in a number of activities.

We ran a school-wide competition with students creating collages of trees, nature and family trees, with many great entries received.

Mr Greenshields had the difficult job of choosing four winners. The lucky students were: Madeleine from M2, Freya T4, Lachlan G9 and Alishba from N7.
