Well, we've done it again! In what is fast becoming a Bankstown West tradition, staff and students have been treated to a fun, entertaining and interactive performance of the 2014 National Simultaneous Reading book: Too Many Elephants In This House, by Ursula Dubosarsky.
National Simultaneous Storytime is an important annual campaign that aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. Students were encouraged to wear their pyjamas and join us for a storytelling picnic in the hall where Mrs Floyd performed Too Many Elephants In This House. That is until she was interrupted by The Magnificent Zitzeff (Mr Coffey) and his three amazingly talented (but easily distracted) elephants. Shenanigans ensued.
A special thanks to Mrs Floyd and Mr Coffey for writing, costuming and starring in the performance as well as the teachers who brought the elephants to life (Mr Brannigan, Mr Anasta, Mr MacDougal, Mrs North and Miss Ayoub).
Everyone had an amazing time and these are the special events that our children will remember for years to come.
