Hey diddle diddle, you all know the riddle, a cow jumps over the moon... but that is not all that happens in our 2017 National Simultaneous Storytime book “The Cow that Tripped Over the Moon” written by Tony Wilson and illustrated by Laura Wood.

At 11.00am on Wednesday 24 May, students from our Junior School classes joined many others around Australia to read the same story at the same time.

2017 - W6 - T2 - National Storytime

National Simultaneous Storytime is an annual event that sees The promotion of story reading in this manner encourages student’s excitement for books and hopefully fosters life-long readers and a love of books. We believe strong literacy skills are so important for every student.

This year’s story about bravery, perseverance and triumph beautifully aligns with our wellbeing program in the Junior School and students from Pre Prep to Year 6 were reminded about being persistent, resilient and getting along.

We look forward to being a part of this event next year because after all - “It seems a moon clearance takes great perseverance”.
