Check out the photos (see the Flickr box, left) of the Summer Reading Club Scare up a good book finale, where over 60 children and their parents celebrated the books that have been read over the school holidays. Highlights were the fantastic scary costumes worn by the kids (and staff), and the Monsters Aren’t Real puppet show by Sue Harris. I think the Pin-the-Spider-on-the-Web game was a hit, as well as the face painting, witches brew trail and craft activities.
The top three readers from the Summer Reading Club are about to be determined, and they will be invited to a special afternoon tea with Mayor Miriam Smith, and receive their book voucher prizes from www.TheNile.com.
Well done to all participants, and thanks for joining in our party!
The winners of the Summer Reading club are as follows:
Amber Tilley (age 7)
Erin Tilley (age 8 )
Ashleigh Preiss (age 6)
See photos of their afternoon tea with Mayor Miriam Smith on our photo page.
Also exciting are the statistics that 88 children participated in the SRC this year, and submitted a total of 141.5 reading logs and 67 book reviews
This compares to 65 participants last year and a total of 147 reading logs.
