Read Mob

Monday was a perfect day to be outside enjoying the sunshine, and it proved an excellent backdrop for the National Year of Reading Read Mob event held in Civic Park. The event kicked off when over 80 primary school students, as well as parents and staff, gathered in the park with their favourite read, while simultaneously other groups were hosting their very own Read Mobs all over South Australia.

All of the participants celebrated their love for reading by planting a National Year of Reading flower, creating a gorgeous artistic display!

The highly talented (arguably…) Children’s and Youth Services team put on a stellar performance of author Lane Smith’s picture book “It’s a Book” and our resident pirate, Stephen, was a huge hit with all the kids.

Our Read Mob was a fun and successful day so a huge shout out to all those who got involved!
