Book Festival 2012!!

Our annual Book Festival was once again a great celebration of books and reading!

This year we had an amazing blast off by our favourite children's author Craig Smith, we had a very successful Book Fair with a visit from Clifford. We made the most amazing monster bookmarks in the second week of the festival and to end our celebration we all dressed up as our favourite book character!  This wonderful day wouldn’t have been the same without all the Cats in the Hat, Mad Hatters, vampires, fairies, witches, princesses, smurfs, cowboys and pirates!   Once again we would love to thank all parents and caregivers for supporting our Book Fair and for magically transforming your children into a book character for the day and for making this wonderful celebration happen for us all.   The end of the celebration doesn't mean the end of reading, please keep reading to and with your children every day and all through the summer, take them to the library and while you are there why not treat yourself to a book as well!

Library lunchtimes

We are having such a wonderful time every lunchtime in the library, we really thought it would be worth sharing some of the photos we have taken.  What on earth would we do without our superhero student librarians, our boardgames, our colouring pencils, the puzzles and storytimes?  We spend about 25 minutes in the library and when we walk out the door we have a big smile on our face and feel completely relaxed and ready for an afternoon of learning!

Time to celebrate!

Have you ever tried having a meeting with your mouth full of blueberry and chocolate muffin?  We have!   It's not easy but it can be done!  Every end of Term our group of Librarians celebrate 'the Term that was' and discuss 'the Term that will be'.  It's fantastic to sit together and share ideas, receive rewards and eat muffins!

What an awesome team we have this year!

Lots of books in T.P.P.S Library

Hi my name is Hannah
There are lots of books in the school Library. Some are about mermaids, others are about ANZAC day or Cat in the Hat.
We have lots of friendly librarians and a kind library leader Mrs Van Nijlen. Our library boss this year is Logan from Room 4.
In the library we have 8 computers for people who are good. Each Friday people go on the library blog.
This is me and Mrs Van Nijlen. We are librarians, we give out  3 P.P.P tickets every lunchtime
to children who walk and whisper in the library, so every person gets a chance to win a Mc Donalds voucher at assembly
