Reading Corner Competition 2016

Reading Corner 2016

Our teachers and children were tasked to create the most inviting and stimulating reading corners which are aimed at encouraging our children to read for pleasure. Over the last few weeks, each class has been designing and  developing its reading corner. Our children have been buzzing with ideas as staff assist them to transform spaces in their classes to create reading corners for a whole-school competition. Bookworm to a Butterfly. Fairies, Spooktacular, Froggy, and many other fantasy themed corners were created.

External judges came to judge the reading corners and to choose the best ones on Thursday. All the judges said that it was a very difficult competition to judge as there was a wide range of reading corners. A big thank you to our judges ,Mrs Charmaine Plit, Shay Heydenrych from Jacana Publishers, Angela Rivers from JPOMA. Mrs Lauren Klevansky from Australian Books for Children of Africa (ABCA) and Rachel Klevansky, for taking time out of their day to judge our corners. Mr Moses from the Inner City Gazette and Racine from North Eastern Tribune also checked out our corners.

The classes really looked wonderful. They have not disappointed. Well done to everyone.
