Scholastic ‘Bookaneer’ Book Fair!

Thank you to everyone who supported our recent Scholastic book fair. As a result of your support we now have $400 worth of new books for our College to enjoy.

Students who purchase from the fair and the book club are put into a draw for vouchers to spend at the fair. The winners were: Kobe Hatcher $30, Charlett Saligari $20, Amy Mathrick $15, Clare Whyte $15 and Samantha Crawford $10

Premier’s Reading Challenge

The 2017 Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is finally up and running. The purpose of the challenge is to encourage students to read more widely and more often. For students from Foundation to Year 2 the challenge is to read or experience 30 books. Years 3 to 10 the challenge is to read 15 books. We offer F/1 students the chance to borrow ‘book bags’- a selection of seven books to help them achieve this goal.

This year I expect students or parents to enter their own books on the site.

For information on the Challenge visit the website http://www.education.vic.gov.au/prc

 

 

Book Fair

Book Fair

The Scholastic truck will arrive tomorrow Tuesday March 7 with a bountiful selection of books and stationary. Scholastic gives us vouchers to offer as incentives and prizes.

The Fair concludes on Tuesday March 21. All sales earn the school commission to purchase books for our school.

Issue 2: Scholastic Book Club

Scholastic Book Club gives the school a 20% commission on all purchases. The Issue 2 brochures were sent home last week and those wishing to make purchases need to be completed by Thursday March 16th.  For those parents new to the system, orders with cash or cheque payments need to be given to Mrs Kingston or Mrs Reading in the library. If you have a credit card it really is easy to order on-line through the Linked Online Ordering & Payment system, (LOOP).   You can download a free app to take you there or visit scholastic.com.au/LOOP   – worth a visit as there is useful advice on reading, as well as competitions to enter, and the brochures can be viewed online.

Once the goods arrive I distribute them to the classroom teachers or student. If you would prefer to collect the items, especially those choosing the LOOP option, please let me know if you would like me to hold the order at school for you to collect.

Missing and Overdue Books

Unfortunately many of our popular books went missing whilst I was on leave caring for my mum. There are also a lot of books that
have been over due in excess of 6 months. Please check under beds, in books shelves and return these so I do not have to waste our
budget replacing old titles – especially when there are so many exciting new ones to choose from!

Issue 8 Book Club

Brochures for the final Book Club for the year are available in the library. Parent LOOP orders have arrived and are available to
collect.

Book Club

Issue 6 orders that I have received so far, including LOOP orders processed before Friday 19th have been submitted. Unfortunately because I am not here this week I won’t be able to process any further cash or check orders. LOOP (online parent orders paid with credit card) can still be submitted and will be duly processed. Sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.

Premier’s Reading Challenge 2016

Premier’s Reading Challenge 2016We are now half way through the Premier’s Reading Challenge. It’s still not too late to enter, and it is an impressive inclusion to have on your resume. (It shows that you are literate and can set yourself goals, though some just do it for the luncheon I provide at the end of the Challenge!)

There are a number of students that are so close to finishing – needing to read a couple of books from the Challenge list.

For information on the Challenge visit the website http://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/events/prc/Pages/default.aspx

To register, please see Mrs Reading in the library.

Congratulations to Mason Harris, year 4, who has finished the Challenge! Continue reading “Premier’s Reading Challenge 2016”
