Library Survey 2011

 This year, the library survey is online!
This will save a lot of paper - and one class can complete the survey all together instead of individually, if you prefer.  Thank you for your feedback, and helping to improve your library!

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world's leading questionnaire tool.

Joy Cowley at Plateau School

It was wonderful to have Joy Cowley come and visit us at school!
It was exciting to hear her read her new book, and wasn't she a great
live storyteller, also??!

Here is Jakob receiving his prize of books and Telstra Clear vouchers

...storytelling in action...

...and a short masterclass in creative writing for Ruru Room!

It was a fantastic visit, and thank you to Penguin Books for the $500 pack of books for the school library. We will all really appreciate them!!
