Book fair a student favourite

THULIMBAH State School recently held a book fair celebrating the wonderful world of books.

The theme for our book fair this year was "Paws for Reading”.

As part of our week-long book fair celebrations, a dress-up day was held.

Students were encouraged to come dressed as their favourite pet.

A wide variety of students and staff dressed as pets walked through the school gate that day, from dogs to cats, rabbits to mice, birds to lizards, a unicorn and even a crocodile.

Parents also came to school after lunch and enjoyed the opportunity to read some of the latest books with their children.

As part of the book fair aphoto competition was held.

Students were required to have a photo taken of them reading to their pet.

WINNERS: Students show off their photographic works.

There were many excellent entries demonstrating some very creative strategies of reading to one's pet.

Winners of the photo competition each received a gift voucher to be spent at book fair.

PBL Reward (Positive Behaviour for Learning)

STUDENTS are very excited about their upcoming behaviour reward, laser tag.

This has been a favourite reward activity among Thulimbah students for many years and we alwaysaim to have a laser tag reward activity once a year.

Therefore students are very much looking forwardto the last day of term when the school playground becomes the perfect landscape for a combat zone.
