Library News – June

Hickory Dickory Dash

National Simultaneous Storytime 2018

It was great that so many SOTA students (and other family members) and staff took part in National Simultaneous Storytime on Wednesday 23 May. We were part of the 1,062,230 people all over Australia reading the same book at the same time. NSS2018's book was Hickory Dickory Dash written by Tony Wilson and illustrated by Laura Wood.

As well as listening to the story students participated in a variety of activities about the story. The activities were also sent to the teachers to use in classes.

Students have until 15 June to take part in the competition. They can:
