This week Mrs. Lee has been summing up our Book Week activities and teaching her Library lesson students about The Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

The Foundation provides books & literacy resources for indigenous kids & families in remote communities. The Foundation has sent Mrs. Lee this great link. It will be national Indigenous Literacy Day in on 4th September. If you want too, you can Get Caught Reading like Andy Griffiths. Take a look at all the fabulous children’s authors taking part. You can make a donation, upload a photo of yourself & tell your friends.

During Book Week the Junior Library held a book sale for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Many parents and friends from the Grammar Community donated books they no longer needed and then a sale proceeded over 3 days during recess and lunch-time. With such support the community has raised $400.00 to pass on to the Foundation. Importantly, our children have learned about the difference access to education means and how being literate is not something we should take for granted.

You can connect with the Foundation via

Thankyou you all for your support.

Launching a new page – Mrs. Lee’s Selections

Mrs. Lee is the Teacher Librarian at the Junior Library, and many Senior students will remember her passion for reading. Mrs. Lee has launched herself into the e-Book world too and is busy sourcing literature and learning apps for her iPad. Students at the Junior School are emerging with their devices, and bringing them into the classroom.

Reading and literacy is happening in so many exciting ways as we have more and more options.

The books at the Junior Library are carefully selected and well loved by our busy borrowers.

Mrs. Lee’s Selections is author based and the first page is the well-loved, well-borrowed Andy Griffiths. Andy is very  popular at the Junior and Senior Campus, so there’s something there for everyone!

Visit our new page here.

Over time Anne Fienberg, Garth Nix, Anthony Horowitz and Michael Morporgo will have a page too. You can watch it grow. We’ll let you know.
