Last Wednesday Kurrajong students participated in the National Simultaneous Storytime session by listening to the book titled ‘Whitney and Britney: Chicken Divas’ at the scheduled time. This event is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books.

This was what Year 1Y thought of the book:

“It was better than I have ever seen, too good”. Asha
“I loved it so much”. Chloe
“I loved it because it’s so interesting”. Olivia
“It was amazing because of the part when Dora burst out and threw her jacket off”.  Harrison

Pulteney Storybook Series

Each Friday we will be sharing a storybook online read by one of our Pulteney staff members. We hope your family enjoys listening to the books selected each week by members of our school community. Storytelling helps to build connections among people and improves listening skills that are essential in learning and in relationships and assists with literacy to help develop a love of reading. This week, the Head of Middle School, Mr Paul Ryan is sharing a book titled ‘The Monster at the End of this Book’ by Jon Stone. You can see the video HERE
