World Read Aloud Day
On Wednesday 6 March Primary students were invited to attend the WORLD READ ALOUD DAY event held in the library at lunch. The event seeks to promote reading and is celebrated annually in many countries. We were very blessed to have Chloe Tsangaris and Amelia King, two of our Year 5 Bookworm Book Club representatives read to us. The girls worked hard to prepare for the storytelling event and did a wonderful job, considering they had a very large and captive audience. Mr Curtis even popped in to congratulate Chloe and Amelia on their fine efforts. Students who attended the event were given a special certificate for attending and a very big thank you for helping to promote a love of reading at GCCC.
The Primary Bookworm Book Club runs in the library every Friday at first lunch. Students from Year 3-6 are welcome to attend and enjoy a wide range of book related chats, activities and craft.
