Book Clubs – Special thanks
Thank you for supporting our Book Clubs at GCCC. We have had another wonderful year celebrating reading with Scholastic and Koorong Kids and continue to be encouraged by the many orders placed by families across the College. We recently received a visit from our Scholastic Rep thanking us for our Book Club achievements. She brought a bundle of free books along with her and encouraged us to keep up the great effort.
The Book Clubs are run voluntarily by our Book Club Coordinators; Kelly Yeo, Kristina Bullard and Debra James. I would like to personally thank these amazing ladies and the many volunteers who have graciously assisted them throughout the year. Running the Book Clubs is a huge task, but the benefits we reap far out way the hard work.
As we look towards 2015 I would like to extend an invitation to anyone who may be interested in assisting with Book Club to contact Vanessa McKellar at [email protected]. There are only 7 issues per year, roughly 2 per term and all of the preparation is completed at school. It is a great way to meet new friends and promote reading at the College. We would love to continue to grow our volunteer team next year and look forward to hearing from willing parents and caregivers.
