Curious Creatures, Wild Minds
Open for Business!
Please remember that our School Library is open again for business!
A reminder that children need to bring their library bags to school each week so they can choose some books to take home and enjoy.
A big thank you to our families all for the time and effort that went into creating the Book Week costumes for our annual dress up day. Even though we couldn't parade at our morning assembly as we normally would it was wonderful to see the children and staff enjoying everyone's costumes before school and at recess.
Our Prep and Year 1/2 communities had a Google Meet with author/illustrator Lucinda Gifford on Monday. Lucinda gave the children a virtual tour of her studio where she creates her books. She also shared her new book, Whitney and Britney Chicken Detectives. The children and teachers were inspired by the session and Lucinda was very impressed with how well the children participated in the session.
Today our Year 3 -6 children experienced sessions with author Tristan Bancks. Tristan spoke about his love of writing, where he gains inspiration for his books and the process he uses when writing.
Tristan has books available for purchase on his website :
Families can use the coupon code CORPUSCHRISTI20 at the checkout to receive a 20% discount. Tristan will collate any orders for students during the coming week and will send signed copies of the books to you. The code is useable through to 27th October.
We look forward to seeing the writing our students produce in the coming weeks after being inspired by both authors this week.
Happy reading everyone!
