We have had a huge month of activities to promote National Reading Month. Many thanks to the staff, students and families that took part and helped promote reading and writing. Our events included the Year 1 AVA Pet Visit, Library and Information Week, National Simultaneous Storytime, the Prep – Year 6 Author Visit with Andrew McDonough from Adelaide, and the Year 7-10 Voices on the Coast excursion at the University of Sunshine Coast. To be honest, library staff are happy to have a restful June and curl up with a good book and a hot cup of tea!

2013 Reading Challange

It’s not too late to register for the PRC (Prep – Year 7)

Registration forms are available at the GCCC Website. Please consider registering; it is a wonderful event and super easy to complete. We already have over 140 students registered. For those families who have completed a reading record, please have your child’s teacher sign it and return it to the library.

SCHOLASTIC READ MORE IN MAY COMPETITION (Prep – Year 12)

For those families who took part in the Read More in May Competition, the calendars are due back by next Wednesday June 12. Winners will be announced in the next newsletter. We will reward the top three families from the College in Primary, Middle and Secondary with a $25 Book Club Voucher and send all entries to Scholastic for the National Read More in May competition. The top 10 families that record the most Reading Minutes in Australia will WIN $150 worth of vouchers to spend on Scholastic Book Clubs and Book Fairs. While families are encouraged to take part, entry in the competition is optional.
