Booka­neers find gold

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

MOSS­MAN State School held the first of two bian­nual book fairs last week with a highly suc­cess­ful book fair evening.

The Aus­tralian Scholas­tic Book Fairs raise valu­able re­sources for our school with one third of our prof­its be­ing con­verted to new books for our school li­brary.

This year’s theme for the book fair was Booka­neer with stu­dents and staff dress­ing up as pi­rates at the par­ent evening.

Book fairs are hugely pop­u­lar at the school as we place a big em­pha­sis on read­ing at all year lev­els.

The daily be­fore school read­ing club re­mains a phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess at the school with more than 100 stu­dents and many fam­ily mem­bers at­tend­ing ev­ery day.

BOOK­SELLERS: Julie Cobb and Kay Pike.

STO­RY­TELLING: Asia Di­a­mond with Kay Pike.
