Do you know the story behind the nursery rhyme Hickory, Dickory, Dock? The students in the Junior School had the chance to find out last Wednesday for the 2018 National Simultaneous Storytime.

On Wednesday 23rd May 2018 our Junior School students engaged in reading the book Hickory Dickory Dash written by Tony Wilson and illustrated by Laura Wood throughout many classes. This story about persistence told through quirky rhymes was greatly enjoyed by all who participated.

National Simultaneous Storytime is an important annual event that involves students from many classes around Australia coming together to read the same story at the same time. 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.

Keep an eye out for next year’s book for National Simultaneous Storytime.
