Getting Ready for End of Year 2016

Image from HERE
The Christmas School Holidays are not far away now, but before they arrive there are some important tasks to get done. In the library we are preparing for our annual end of year stocktake!

All library books are due back before Friday, 2nd December. You can help out by returning all your library books to the library "As Soon As Possible" and before the end of this week please.

Will your class will be first to return all their library books this year?


If you have any other school books such as journals, junior reading books and class books lying around at home  now is a good time to return these to school too.

                    A Discount Haircut for Reading Aloud

                    In the news in the US this week is a Barbershop giving their child customers a discount haircut if they read aloud while having their hair cut. The barbershop found out about it happening in other places in the US before they started the scheme themselves. This sounds like a great idea, I wonder if we can convince barbers and hairdressers in NZ to do this?
