Library News | Junior School

We celebrated National Simultaneous Story Time in the Library on Wednesday. Mr Dunn was fabulous as an astronaut reading Philip Bunting’s book Give Me Some Space! Mr Dunn had the opportunity to read the story twice, once with the assistance of Kyriakos in Year 2 and Neil in Year 1 at the Infants Assembly.

The purpose of the National Simultaneous Reading time is an opportunity to promote the love of reading, literacy and the joy of books. The day also helps promote Australian writers and publishers. Boys in Year 6 sat with their buddies in the Library space listening to the story being read. Meanwhile a link for classroom teachers had been established for those boys in Years 3, 4 and 5 to watch on their big screens in the classroom, watching the performance live. Thank you to Mr Karagiannis for organising all of this.

Give Me Some Space! was written and illustrated by Philip Bunting and is about “a young girl Una who dreams of a life in Space. Life on Earth is just so so-so. But how will she get there? And will she complete her mission to discover life in Space? And did she remember to feed Neil the goldfish?”

We have a couple of copies in the Junior School Library if your son would like to borrow this book, or many other Philip Bunting books.
