The youngest members of our school community had a busy day on Wednesday, 23rd May! Before heading out to the Athletics Carnival, our Kindergarten to Year 2 participated in the National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS). SMGS joined 8255 schools, childcare centres, libraries and preschools around Australia in this year’s event. The story, Hickory Dickory Dash, was about a mouse who must find her missing children before the clock strikes 1 but she must watch out for the cat!
According to the NSS website, the aim of the event is to romote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children’s book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.
The SMGS community is looking forward to participating in this event again next year!
