National Year of Reading 2012


The National Year of Reading is about promoting reading in all its many forms and expressions but also to validate the act of reading – whether you read a book, a phone screen or a sign. 

Alison Lester’s “Are we there yet?” has been chosen for the National Year of Reading’s, one book, one country – a story for everyone around Australia to read to promote reading.  The story is based on the reflections of her children on their adventurous and sometimes funny expedition around Australia.  This story will be shared with classes.   You are welcome to borrow it for home too.  Please see Ms Heeley for a parent library card.

“Are we there yet?” short story competition is being held in Qld from 20 April – 1 June.
