National Simultaneous Storytime

Wednesday, May 25, 2022

On Wednesday, May 25, 2022, all students in Foundation - Year 6 participated in National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS). This annual event is conducted by the Australian Library and Information Association and aims to promote the value of reading and literacy. The book chosen to be read by over one million children in schools, pre-schools, libraries, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places across Australia and New Zealand this year is Family Tree, written by Josh Pyke and illustrated by Ronojoy Gosh.

This year, students in Year 3 - 6 joined Foundation - Year 2 in NSS as part of our College commemoration of Laudato Si’ Week. The themes of Family Tree which include family, community, and the seasons of nature and life, reflect the call of Pope Francis to care for our common home. During the morning literacy block, students participated in a variety of activities that enabled them to express their feelings about their families and the natural environment.
