Book Character Day

 

P1110069
Don’t forget book character day tomorrow. It is always a lot of fun. Have a dig around in the dress up box, or use your imagination to come up with a creative character.
All children get the opportunity to chat about their character tomorrow at assembly – so make sure that they have a fact or two up their sleeve.
Parents are very welcome to attend the book character assembly – it starts at 9.15 am and goes for an hour or so. After that please stay on and read a favourite book (or chapter) to a group of eager children. Morning tea will follow in the staff room. We also have a great selection of books from Wright’s Paper Plus in the foyer. You are VERY welcome to donate one to the school library. If you do, a bookplate with your family’s / child’s name will be placed in the book and they will be the first borrowers!

 

It’s good to be back…
