Book Fair is on this week in the library from Monday 21st May to Friday 25th May. Payment options are cash or credit card. Supporting our Book Fair is a great way to help build the library collection. A commission is earned on all purchases which is then spent on buying new books for the library.
To celebrate the theme of book fair ‘Paws for Books’, there is a guess the pet competition. Staff and students are invited to match the pets to their owners to win a book fair voucher. Entry forms and further information is available on the wooden seat outside the library.
National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS)
St Brigid’s will participate in National Simultaneous Storytime on Wednesday the 23rd May. The book for this year is ‘Hickory Dickory Dash’ By Tony Wilson. NSS is a national initiative created by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Each year a picture book that is written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator is read in schools and libraries across Australia. This is our 3rd year participating and the students always enjoy it! For more information, you can click on the link below.
All of the students are practicing their track and field skills in the lead up the school athletics carnival to be held on Friday 1st June 2018. We are now looking for parent helpers / volunteers to help with the setting up and to take on roles such as time keeping throughout the day. Set up will begin at 7:15am. If you are able to help please call the school office.
Touch Football The All Schools Touch Football Competition is well and truly underway. St Brigid’s has three teams in the competition. The 5/6 team are the Titans and two 3/4 teams are the Dragons and Knights. During the first week of competition, the Dragons lost to the ECC Titans, with Hanya Turner and Cooper Bennett named as the most outstanding players. The Knights also lost, however Archie Matheson and Maxx Armstrong played outstanding games. The Titans had a three all draw. Keelan King scored three tries and Jaidyn Comrie scored one. Last week the Dragons lost to ESS but Ryan Newby and Ella Bain had fantastic games. The Knights had a win against Capella and Archie and Maxx were mentioned for their exceptional play again. The Titans had a win against ESS, with all reports stating that this team will be the one to watch. Their team plays, sportsmanship and overall skill are exciting to watch.
