A message from Mrs Kewish in the library

posted Nov 7, 2018, 6:15 PM by Reception @TMCS

A huge thank you to all the wonderful parents, grandparents and children who purchased books from the Scholastic Book Fair last week. It is a privilege to work in a school where the parents recognise the importance of reading for their children. Due to everyone's purchases we have gained a significant number of new books for our library.




Jessica Townsend author trip


A group of GATE students went with Mrs Kewish and helpers to Southwell School on Tuesday to hear the author Jessica Townsend talk. She gave an amazing speech which all of the students loved. She then signed books. If you like Harry Potter you must try her books.



Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow was the biggest-selling Australian children's debut since records began.
