On Wednesday 24th May students Reception to Year 3 gathered in our Gym to be a part of National Simultaneous Story Time.
National Simultaneous Storytime is an annual campaign that aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. Now in its 17th successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children’s book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.

The story students viewed was ‘The Cow Tripped Over the Moon’ by Tony Wilson and Laura Wood
All students had come prepared for the event by making cow hats. It was a great way to enjoy reading and story time in a new and different way. We certainly all enjoyed it!
Thank you to Ms Amato and Tsam in the library for organising the fabulous experience.
