PREMIER’S READING CHALLENGE 2017

We are delighted to invite all Coorparoo State School students to participate in the Premier’s Reading Challenge 2017

As well as being fun, the challenge aims to boost children’s literacy skills by encouraging students to read widely for pleasure and learning, to develop their imagination, and to cultivate a passion for literature.

The reading period for the 2017 Premier's Reading Challenge commences 15 May and closes 25 August.

This year, the Premier has challenged all state and non-state school students from Prep to Year 2 to read or experience 20 books, Years 3 and 4 to read 20 books and Years 5 to 9 to read 15 books.

Prep to Year 2 students can experience books through shared reading, listening to stories or reading picture book.

Students wishing to take part in this year’s challenge can register by visiting the library and adding their name to the Readers Challenge. At this time a Reading Log will be given to the student.

Every student who completes the challenge by the end of August will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier and all students receive a Certificate of Participation. Mr Murphy will present these certificates in our School’s BOOK WEEK next term. We will keep you posted.

For more information about the Premier’s Reading Challenge, please visit:

You can play a big part in your children’s future by encouraging them to be part of this positive initiative.

We look forward to seeing as many of our students as possible embrace the 2017 Premier’s Reading Challenge.

GERMAN DAY OUT TO LONE PINE

On Thursday 15  June our Year 6 students will have the opportunity to participate in a German Day Out  organized by the Goethe Institut.

What is a ring-tailed possum in German? Where does the python live? Who loves to eat praying mantes? In the zoo’s Education Centre or on a guided tour through the zoo a native speaker will give basic information in German. Then the zoo staff provides detailed information in English. Students receive a worksheet to fill in the answers in German.

Another part of the zoo day is a quiz in German. Students will find information in a questionnaire and are asked to collect different pieces of a puzzle at designated stations throughout the zoo. Next they create a fantasy animal using these pieces. The task includes finding an inventive German name for their fantasy animal. The animal naming and the questionnaire are the entry for a competition!  Students will also have the option to visit one or two zoo shows.

The cost of the excursion is $26.00. Permission slips and payment must be received by Thursday 3 June. Late payments cannot be accepted.
