World Read Aloud Dayworld read aloud day

On Wednesday 5 March Primary students were invited to attend the World Read Aloud Day event held in the library at first lunch. The event is held annually and seeks to promote every child’s right to read and have access to stories that inspire them. The event was celebrated in more than 75 countries, from Kosovo to Ethiopia, India to Colombia, as well as here in Australia. We had two very special guests read to us on World Read Aloud Day. They included Lara James and Anastasia Sponza, two of our Year 5 Bookworm Book Club members. The girls worked hard to prepare for the storytelling event and read Edward the Emu and Edwina the Emu by Sheena Knowles, to an excited and captive audience. Students were given a special certificate for attending the event and a very big thank you for helping to promote a love of reading at GCCC. Special thanks to Lara and Anastasia for being such wonderful reading ambassadors at GCCC.

Book Club Volunteers Needed

We are still looking for volunteers who can assist a few times a term with helping sort and staple Book Club brochures and packing orders when the arrive. The times and days may vary, but if you are happy to be emailed when we need extra help it would be grately appreciated. Please contact Vanessa McKellar at vanessa.mckellar@glasshouse.qld.edu.au if you are able to assist.

See you in the library,
