Scholastic Book Fair 2018
Date: Wednesday 28th February, 2018
Time: 7 p.m.  to 8:30 p.m.

 Scholastic Book Fair is a wonderful reading event where mobile bookcases are packed with the best books to sell at school to help children develop a life-long love of reading. Every book sold at school helps to get free books for our school. Last year we held a very successful book fair and we earned E330.56 worth of free books for Cullen NS. We were able to purchase novels for each classroom. Thank you kindly to all those who purchase books during Book Fair Week. We are looking forward to our upcoming event! 

Station Teaching:
Each year, the school completes a period of Station Teaching. The pupils are divided into small groups and each group is encouraged by a teacher to discuss a novel. This year we chose to focus on Imagery. The senior classes study such novels as 'War Horse',  'Under the Hawthorn Tree', 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'. First class really enjoy studying Panda Books because of the unpredictability of the characters in each novel. Station Teaching allows children in the junior classes to revise their phonics and to improve their fine motor skills.
