MS Readathon and Premier’s Reading Challenge have now finished
The reading period for the MS Readathon finished on August 31. The reading period for the Premier’s Reading Challenge finishes on Friday 6 September. Please ensure all PRC Reading Record Forms are signed by class teachers and then returned to the library. Extra Reading Records are available in the library if the original has been misplaced. Certificates will be given out in Term 4 to students who have returned their Reading Record Form.
The final date to return PRC reading records is Wednesday September 11.
Book Week was celebrated recently and this year’s theme, ‘Read Across the Universe’ inspired an amazing array of costumes. We had astronauts, solar systems, planets and wonderful book characters, even a student dressed up as our very own Principal, Mr. Curtis as he appeared in the 2012 GCCC Yearbook. Students completed a range of Book Week activities during the week, including a Lego challenge, reading ipad stories, a mystery reader visit by Chappy Dani, board games and space craft. Many thanks to the amazing effort that parents and students put in to the costumes. I think this year was our best ever!
