Breakfast Book Club

I’m happy to announce our first meeting will be on FRIDAY 6th April @ 7.45am in the library.  (Week 10).
The book I have selected is Wonder by R. J Palacio.  I have 3 copies available for purchase @ $10 (due to an ordering error last year) if you would like to buy one.
For our younger readers, there is a picture book that captures the essence of the novel We’re all wonders which is in our library or alternately, the picture book Whoever you are by Mem Fox.
I think it would be great if the kids could respond by choosing an act of kindness to complete before the book club.  I will also set up a message jar (or something of the like) so that our members can spread kindness by saying something positive about another member.
I look forward to seeing you all then.  Please remember to bring a small plate of food to share for breakfast.
It’s not too late to join.  Simply comment on this post or email Simone @ if you’d like to  join us, we’d love your company.

If you are looking to nurture a love of books and reading with your child, then our Breakfast book club is for you.   As a group we choose a book to share with our children at home and then do a fun art/craft/creative activity related to the book to share at Book Club. We meet twice a term (once in Terms 1 & 4) on an agreed Friday morning from 7.45-8.30a.m. Each family brings a small plate of food to share, Simone supplies breakfast juice and we have a wonderful time sharing our responses to books.  Our club has been a huge success and we have all loved it.  If you’d like to join us this year, please email Simone (, comment on this post or pop into the library, we’d love to have you in our club.

Happy reading!


Welcome to a new school year

I trust that you enjoyed the festive season and some quality time with your family.  We were delighted to have new carpet laid over the holidays and we think the results are spectacular.  Make sure you pop in and have a look next time you’re passing the library.

Our new carpet looks fantastic!


8.30am – 3.30pm daily

Whole school borrowing times 8.50-9.20 and 1.50-2.20

Each class will also have a weekly browse and borrow session.

Don’t forget about our Pop-Up libraries scattered all over the school.  These are available for borrowing all day every day, so our kids can always find a book to read.

Dr Seuss was our inspiration for our Term 1 theme (see pictures below).

Remember “you’re never too wacky, too old, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”

Happy Reading,


The Lorax and his Truffula trees!

The more that you read, the more you will know, the more that you know the more places you go!

Reading is the THING to do

Mr Lemoncello’s final book club

We had so much fun celebrating our wonderful book club last night playing a fantastic game of ‘Escape from Mr Lemoncello’s Library’  (our final read for 2017).

Everyone had a blast solving cryptic clues to find books with hidden riddles, but no one enjoyed it more than our winning team, ‘The Quiz Masters’.

Thank you to everyone who participated in book club this year, it’s been great fun nurturing a love of reading.

I hope to see you all back for a bigger and better 2018!
