National Simultaneous Story Time

30 May
The Primary Library hosted another terrific National Simultaneous Story time  this year. The book which was featured was called: “I got this Hat” by Jol and Kate Templeimgres.

It was held on Wednesday 25th May but ran for two weeks in the library in order to cover all the classes and all aspects of the campaign which is to simply extend children’s enjoyment and appreciation of books.P1010871

On Wednesday 25th May, the junior classes namely Years Prep, Ones and Twos were asked to come to school wearing a “funny, weird, imaginative, crazy” hat and they didn’t disappoint!! Have a look here at the many different ones!

On behalf of the primary library we would like to extend a special note of gratitude to the parents who went out of their way to support their children in this fun activity.

A quick reminder too that the IBC Shop will be running a Book Fair here in the library foyer from Monday 20th June to Friday 24th June inclusively.

Please ensure small children have their money secured in an envelope to avoid any upset for your child. They will be able to shop during the library time and if you wish to come with them after school, you’re more than welcome. We will be open till 3:15pm as it is during Ramadan. Many thanks for your assistance and co-operation in that.
