Discussions about gravity, solar systems, hot chocolate and even colonisation formed part of the ‘National Simultaneous Storytime’ held on Wednesday 19 May.
Children across Australia read “Give Me Some Space” by Philip Bunting on this day to reinforce the importance of reading. Classes in the Junior School participated in many activities including designing and planning space travel and making rockets.
Boys were very excited to watch astronaut, Dr Shannon Walker, at the International Space Station reading the story!
