National Simultaneous Storytime at Broughton

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.

Mrs Barnes organised an event in the IRC for Kindergarten and Year 1. It included reading the story three times: once by Mrs Barnes with added ‘Sound Words’, once by Jay Laga’aia  reading online and then again with teachers and two senior students as a ‘sound band’ accompaniment. This was concluded back in the classroom with prepared activities. (A short video of the event is in the ‘Events’ menu above)
