National Storytime with Ms Temmen
What a pleasure it was to read to our very attentive and engaged Year 4 boys on Wednesday in our Junior School Library. National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association. 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. This year’s text, a lovely picture book by Josh Pyke and illustrator Ronojoy Ghosh was “Family Tree”. We look forward to displaying some of the boys own “Family Tree” gum leaves in the library. A big thank you to Mrs Spencer for facilitating this.

Year 5/6 Sport
This week our fixtures were away against Hale. Well done to all the boys who did their best for their respective teams and sport. A great time was had by all. Training will take place as usually for the boys next Wednesday morning.
The Junior School Music Night will take place on the evening of Friday, 10 June. There will be both large and small groups performing on the evening, which will involve most of the boys in the Junior School.

As we begin to move forward to the music night, all the bands, ensembles, choir, and vocal ensemble are practicing very hard for the music night and the performing arts which are also coming up.
The tensions are rising for cross-country which is next week, and we are all excited to see who comes first and runner-up, with Year 4 doing 1.5 kilometres, Year 5, 2.5 kilometres, and Year 6 doing 3 kilometres and we hope the best for our runners doing inter-school and lets hope they can bring the trophy home.
On behalf of the Junior School we would like to thank our maintenance team for installing the basketball hoop which has turned out a great success with lots of students playing on it at recess and lunch and sometimes it is so crowded that you cannot play! It was a wonderful idea to install it, thank you.
