Today, our youngest learners stopped and were part of the almost 1.3 million students Australia-wide to read Lucinda Gifford’s “Whitney and Britney - Chicken Divas!”.
Special guest reader Deputy Head of College, Mrs Catterall, recorded a reading of the book which was shared with our students to enjoy virtual storytime. The book was also enjoyed by our ELC learners, with a special visit from Mr Goulter. Our Prep students enjoyed making their very own microphones in the CLI Makerspace and used these as props during storytime.
Our students love Lucinda Gifford and her books are flying off the shelves in our junior library.
Reading events like National Simultaneous Storytime are great ways to generate excitement around books and reading, to encourage a lifetime passion in our young readers.
