Pulteney Storybook Series 

Each Friday we will be sharing a storybook online read by one of our Pulteney staff members or students. Storytelling helps to build connections among people and improves listening skills that are essential in learning and in relationships. We hope your family enjoys listening to the books selected each week by members of our school community. This week you can view ELC Educator Todd Kerber share a book titled ‘There’s an Alligator Under my Bed’ by Mercer Mayer HERE.

Author Visit

Kurrajong welcomed a visiting South Australian author, Katrina Germein. She spoke to us about the process of writing a book and working with illustrators. She shared tips on how she comes up with ideas for her books. I think we now have some budding authors in the making!

The Year 2 STEAM group have been working with Mrs White and a Year 11 student, Gabriel Luksich, to drive a community initiative with the intention of informing others about the devastating effects of deforestation on rainforest wildlife, in particular orangutans. They have come up with the idea of designing and making badges that carry important messages to sell to our Pulteney community. This carries a dual purpose. Firstly, to inform others about the problem and offer advice on how they can make lifestyle changes to help, secondly to raise enough money to adopt an orangutan in Borneo where Gabriel visited last year with the school. The entire Year 2 cohort are now in the process of designing and making the badges ready to be sold for a gold coin donation on Wednesday 16 September in the Kurrajong Courtyard. Students are also encouraged to come dressed in a splash of orange on the day to show their support.
