LITERACY WEEK STORY TELLING - Our students and parents read and told traditional culturally based stories to our students as part of our Literacy Week celebrations.  The children and teachers really enjoyed hearing these stories.  


The ability to read independently and with fluency and expression is a life skill that is vital. However, it is as important for children to experience a wide range of texts from a very young age. This is accomplished by being read to - particularly as children are developing their reading skills. At school, we read to our students every day and it is encourage that the same occur at home. Reading is a fantastic means of the entire family getting together in order to enjoy the wonderful world of books or some valuable 1 on 1 time.
