Parent Open Night & Book Fair

Parents and carers are invited to attend our Parent Open Night on Wednesday 12th September from 5:00 to 6:30pm. Children will share with parents the wonderful learning they have been doing in their classrooms. A sausage sizzle will be available. This will be manned by the team from Helping Hands, with proceeds going towards our Year 6 ‘s surprise gift to the school. We hope to see all families represented at this whole school event.

As a special highlight, our library will be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair which will be open on Parent Night. Students will pre-view the books during school time and bring home a wish list. This is a great opportunity for families to view and purchase quality books at reasonable prices.

This week, in the library, we are celebrating the Children’s Book Council of Australia book awards with our ‘Find Your Treasure’ display. Many of us have a treasured book from childhood that may have sparked our love of reading.

Sharing the opportunity to see, touch, explore new books and choose their own is great motivation for children to read more. We invite you to search for a book for your child to treasure at the Scholastic Book Fair that we will be hosting in the Library during Week 9. An invitation flyer will be sent home next week and students will be able to preview books in school time the following week with a wish list to note their interest.
