On Wednesday 24 May at exactly 11.00am our Junior School students joined millions of other children across the country for the annual National Simultaneous Storytime.

Each year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in schools and libraries across Australia. Now in its 23rd year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy.

This year’s book was The Speedy Sloth, by Rebecca Young and Heath McKenzie and was read by our Head of Junior School, Ms Rebecca Collie. To make it even more fun we chose two winners from each year level at random to win a copy of the book and a baby sloth fluffy toy.

If your child missed out or wants to relive the fun, click here to watch the video. Congratulations to the lucky winners!
