Library Update

This term, our focus in Primary Library lessons is on literature, as we celebrate books! Students in Reception-Year 2 will read the Early Childhood Category and Years 3-6 the Picture Book of the Year Category of the CBCA Short-Listed books for 2020. All students will vote for their favourite book and this will be announced during Book Week in Week 7.

With regard to online resources available, parents are kindly reminded that the Google Doc has been updated and was emailed to parents earlier this week.

A friendly reminder the Premier’s Reading Challenge concludes in four weeks’ time (28 August, 2020). We have had over 200 students already complete the Challenge; this is an amazing effort! For details on how your child can complete the challenge, please refer to the information emailed earlier this week.

Holiday/Online Reading Photos (Reception-Year 6)

Normally, I would have requested holiday reading photos to use for a display and Book Week slide show. This year, we’ll need to get a bit more creative!

Keeping the Book Week theme in mind ‘Curious Creatures, Wild Minds’, parents are kindly reminded of the email sent earlier this week, with instructions and the relevant folders for taking and submitting a photo of your child, reading at home or somewhere in Hong Kong.

It would be greatly appreciated if parents could save the photo with your child’s name and class directly into the relevant folder.
