National Simultaneous Storytime 2019 1

The National Simultaneous Storytime event today at Vasse Primary School was a great success.

Mrs. Joan Davies read aloud the story, “Alpacas with Maracas” by Australian author Matt Cosgrove, to a packed house (a.k.a. undercover area) of students, teachers and parents. The story: “Macca and pal Al are the best of friends so when there is an opportunity to enter a talent contest together, they just can’t resist.

A wonderful way to start our Wednesday.  #1milionkidsreading
