National Simultaneous Storytime

Today, our students were among the 2,186,347 participants in the National Simultaneous Storytime. 📖

We gathered together, as a school, to listen to Josh Pyke, the author, read his picture story book ‘𝑭𝒂𝒎𝒊𝒍𝒚 𝑻𝒓𝒆𝒆’, illustrated by Ronojoy Ghosh. A heartfelt celebration of family, community, and the seasons of life, to cherish and to share. 🌳

Students engaged in discussions about the important themes in the book, and created some wonderful craft to demonstrate their understanding. 👧 👦
National Simultaneous Storytime is held annually. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. It aims to promote the value of reading and literacy.
