Do you want to see the JS teachers wear their pyjamas to school?

Literacy Week 29 February – 4 March

The Junior School Council (JSC) has initiated an activity to be held as part of Literacy week to help other children in our community.

The JSC is organising a book collection for children at Hope House and a possible 'Wear your pyjamas to school day' on Wednesday 2 March.

We have agreed if JS students can collect 160 books before 29 February then all JS students can wear their pyjamas to school on the allocated day and take part in a special bedtime story activity with buddy classes.

The JS teachers think we can do better than that!

We challenge the JS students to collect 300 books for Hope House before 29 February. If students can do this then all the JS teachers will also wear their pyjamas to school on the allocated day!

What type of books do we need to collect?

We ask that JS families support this initiative by purchasing new books aimed at Kinder to Gr 3 level such as:

  • Half English half Thai books -the best bookstore for these is the Seed bookstore.  
  • English phonic readers or simple English picture books. 
  • Thai story books pitched at that level are great also

Students can start bringing these books into their homeroom class from Monday 8 February.
