National Simultaneous Story Time 2015
National Simultaneous Story time is an important annual campaign that aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. Now in its 15th successful year; it is a colourful, vibrant and 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 Grades 1 to 6. This year our school, along with hundreds of other schools, libraries and community locations across Australia took part in National Simultaneous Story time on Wednesday 27 May at 11am.This year’s book was called The Brothers Quibble written by Aaron Balbey. Catie entertained us with her fabulous reading of The Brothers Quibble and classes participated in a range of related activities from making crowns to drawing portraits of their own siblings and families.
