Welcome back

We hope you have had a relaxing break and are looking forward to the start of Term 2. Thank you to the students who have entered our “write an awesome story” competition over the holidays, we are reading the stories and will announce the winner shortly.

Anzac Day

Australians commemorate Anzac Day on 25 April every year. This is the anniversary of the day when Australian and New Zealand soldiers landed on Gallipoli in 1915 as part of the Allies’ invasion. Anzac Day draws large crowds of people to the dawn services, and marches are held around the country.

Anzac Day is a time for all Australians to recognise the more than 1.5 million service men and women who have served our country in all conflicts, wars and peacekeeping operations. It’s also a time to remember the more than 102,000 Australians who sacrificed their lives in our Country’s name. To find an Anzac Day event near you, visit the RSL NSW website.

Strathfield Library and Innovation Hub’s Reading Buddies program is back!

The Reading Buddies program will match your primary school aged child with a Big Buddy volunteer for a weekly 30 minute session at the Library so that they can practise their reading one-on-one.

Sessions are available Monday-Friday from 3:30-4:30pm during school terms.

To register your interest for this program please fill in the online application form
