READERS' CUP 2016
Last week, Maree Payne and I were delighted to accompany Tyler, Madalyn, Keeley, Adam
and Max to the Readers’ Cup Competition at Algester State School. (A huge
THANK YOU to Mrs Payne for transporting us all safely there and back).
In order to prepare for the competition, the students had to read 6 books, make detailed
notes and prepare questions to quiz the other team members. They also had to meet twice
a week, once with Mrs O’Brien and once with me to discuss the books they were reading!
At the end of the day, the team enjoyed meeting the entertaining and inspiring Yvonne Mes, guest author of one
of the books Meet Sydney Nolan. Although it was a very tough competition, our amazing team was delighted to
come 11th out of 30 schools!

Parent-teacher interviews will be held in Week 2 of next term from Monday 18 July to Friday 22 July. Morning times will begin at 7:30am and the last afternoon time on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday will be 4:00pm. Wednesday 20th July will provide times until 6:45pm.
