National Simultaneous Storytime - 22nd May

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre- schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. Now in its 24th successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children's book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.

The 2024 NSS book is 'Bowerbird Blues by Aura Parker'. All students will listen to this story next week on Wednesday 22 May.

To celebrate this year's NSS, we are inviting students to take part in a colouring competition. Students will receive a hard copy of the colouring competition at school (one for EYC, and one for TSC). They can also be downloaded via the link in our latest newsletter.  

Entries are due to the library by Monday 27 May - Prizes to be won!
