1,000 Books before School
To the 1,000 books families who have registered. I am preparing for a presentation ceremony for those who have completed milestones since our last ceremony back in February. If you have completed your reading log please drop them into the library to ensure that your child receives their certificate(s). So, lock in Saturday 21 November at 10am.
For those who haven’t registered their child it is never too late especially if they are attending the Grenfell Pre-School & Long Day Care Centre, the books read will count towards the 1,000-book total.
