Welcome to our Class!

Books with AppleOn Wednesday 26th September we were lucky to be invited by The New Zealand Book Council to host its inaugral ‘Books and Brekkie’.

The aim of the event was to support parents’ involvement in their children’s reading, and was sponsored by the NZ Book Council and Pitango (kids meals). Many Year 5-6 students and their siblings, parents/whānau attended.

They enjoyed breakfast and then award winning NZ author, Tessa Duder read to them and answered questions. Two groups of 8 students were especially fortunate to have time with Tessa in a literacy workshop. Thanks to Catherine and her team from AUT, and Sally from Botica Butler Raudon Partners, their mentor, for organising this event.
