If you are coming to school next week, please return all outstanding library books to the book trolley outside the library (main library) or the “Book Returns” box (chalet library). Families will not be fined for books that are returned late during Term 3.
My Hero is You, by Helen Patuck, is a free ebook for children about Covid-19. Sara misses seeing her friends at school, and feels lonely and scared at home. She flies around the world with a dragon, teaching people how to keep safe during the pandemic. The book will be translated into Arabic, Chinese French, Russian, and Spanish.
No Easter Egg Hunt this year? How about a Bear Hunt instead??
