May is "National Family Reading Month" and to celebrate this, Mundaring Christian College (Primary Campus), in collaboration with Scholastic, will be holding a Book Fair!
When: Friday, May 24 (week 4).
Books will be on display in the Science Room (opposite the Library) throughout the week leading up to Friday, so students and parents can go in and have a look at what exciting new books can be purchased. Students will also be given a ‘Wish List’ slip where they can write down book titles that they might like to purchase. Books can be pre-paid online and the student can then bring the ‘Wish List’ slip back to school as ‘Proof of Purchase’ (please see copy of the slip below) OR they can bring in money on the day (Friday May 24).
We will also be running some competitions leading up to the day: Colouring in for PP to year 1, Favourite Book Cover Designs for years 2 – 3 and Book or Author Reviews for years 4 – 6. There will be ‘Money Vouchers’ for prizes (donated by Scholastic) of $5 and $10 that the winners can put towards the purchase of a new book at the Fair.
Also during ‘Book Fair Week’ (Week 4), on Wednesday May 22, is ‘National Simultaneous Storytime’. The book this year is ‘Alpacas with Maracas’ written and illustrated by Matt Cosgrove. Classes across the school will be reading this book to celebrate the value of Reading and Literacy. You can find a copy of this book in the Primary School Library.
