Premier's Reading Challenge is almost completed for the year

In this post I am sharing some important points from the NSW Premier, Barry 
O'Farrell MP, to  highlight the value  of completing this challenge:"With the Reading 

Challenge students are able to choose from an extensive and exciting list of books that 
offer all kinds of fiction and non-fiction reading adventures.

In making your choices, I urge all of you to read as widely as possible. Explore the different categories and discover new treasures to enrich your reading experience.
Through books you will acquire knowledge, develop your  imagination and improve your mind."
to all of our students that have 
successfully completed the 2011 PRC!!

Woolworths Earn and Learn  

From now to September 18th 2011, we receive 1 Woolworths Earn & Learn point for every $10 you spend in store.When the program ends schools redeem points against a choice of more than 7,000 educational resources. Points will automatically appear on your shopping dockets, which you simply take to your school. Schools can then collect and upload their points. Have some questions? Check the FAQs.  You can get your neighbours and family members to give your shopping dockets with points to our school. Woolworths Earn & Learn are not open to Childcare Centres, Playgroups, Pre-schools or Family day-care so this is the chance to help your local Primary school.

These are some of the things that I would love to earn 
for our library:
  • Turn any spot in the classroom into a cozy place to relax with these jumbo-sized pillows that children can rest, lean or sit right on. Each cushy pillow has an inner core filled with super soft foam plus a durable cotton-polyester cover that zips off for machine washing. Each pillow measures 100 x 100 x 25cm.
