National Simultaneous Story time at GWPS!

On Wednesday 24th May, Glen Waverley Primary School took part in the National Simultaneous Storytime where all the children at our school, read the Storybook “The Speedy Sloth" simultaneously at 11.30am with all other students around the nation. 


This is the annual event by the Australian Library and Information Association where an Australian author’s picture story book is read simultaneously across the nation.

Each of our classrooms shared and read this story to our students. 

The aim of the National Simultaneous Storytime is to:

  • promote the value of reading and literacy,
  • promote the value and fun of books,
  • promote an Australian writer and publisher,
  • promote storytime activities in libraries and communities around the country and,
  • provide opportunities to involve parents, grandparents, the media and others to participate in and enjoy the occasion.
