The children of Canowindra Preschool have had the opportunity to learn about all of the famous book characters out there this week, with Book Week being celebrated throughout the week. Special guest readers visited the Preschool this week, with each of them reading a different story to the children. The Man from Snowy River, Cinderella, and the Little Mermaid were just some of the famous book characters that the Preschool’s children got to learn about during the week.
The theme this year was Australia – Story Country, and all children were encouraged to dress up each day as their favourite character from a book and bring that book along with them to Pre School. On Monday Meg Jobson read Koala Lou by Mem Fox, and on Tuesday and Wednesday Anne Ward and Tommy Jeffs made guest appearances respectively, reading stories and dressing up at the same time.
Thursday will see St Edwards Primary School students come in to read to the children, and on Friday, the Community Reading Day will take place at Canowindra Public School. The Preschool students will be attending this community event to cap off what will have been an exciting week for them.
