Many thanks to the volunteers who help to keep our Junior Reading room functional, particularly those who are assisting with the return and filing of our books. Your quiet efforts do not go unnoticed and are much appreciated!
We require a vast number and variety of engaging reading resources to meet our students’ needs. Only a small proportion of our books are government funded. The majority of these needs to be purchased from the school’s limited budget. With each reader costing approximately $10.50, teachers are being vigilant in keeping track of our books.
Some guided reading groups consist of 10+ students, so it is vital that our books are well cared for and returned promptly back to the Junior Reading room for others to use. Teachers are unable to hand out readers to those children who haven’t returned their previous book(s). It is important that teachers sight the return of each reader as part of this process, so please ensure books remain in book bags until the teacher is ready.
Thanks for your continued support with this.
