Australia Reads Campaign

‚ÄčThis year, the Australia Reads campaign starts on 1 November. It invites Australians to share and celebrate the joys of reading for twelve days. The main event, the Australian Reading Hour, is on Thursday 12 November. It is often difficult for busy parents to read for their own enjoyment so why not take this opportunity to make some time for yourself. At school we make time for sustained reading, it is a skill that takes time to develop and as with anything, practice improves the skill. This can be continued at home, drop everything and read together for a set time, whatever works for the family. Reading has the added benefits of reducing stress and helping us escape for a moment or two. So, join us and the rest of Australia for Australia Reads. Your child will bring home a book mark in their library bag next week, pop it on the fridge as a reading reminder.
