National Year of Reading Celebrations – Simultaneous Story Time

As part of the National Year of Reading Celebrations Navigator College will participate in National Simultaneous Story Time 2012.

On Wednesday 23 May 2012 Navigator College will join schools from Broome to Hobart, reading the picture book The Very Cranky Bear to more than 170,000 children across Australia.

Students from Reception to Year 3 will be reading The Very Cranky Bear on a class set of interactive IPads Navigator College acquired at the beginning of the year.

Now in its twelfth successful year, National Simultaneous Storytime 2012 aims to celebrate and acknowledge the vital work being done in libraries, schools and communities around Australia to develop young people’s literacy and numeracy skills.

The Very Cranky Bear is written by Nick Bland and published by Scholastic Australia..
