Reading for Fun


​Our whole school took part in a Reading for Fun afternoon on Friday 10 March.


Teachers and teacher aides were joined by Mrs Bradley from the City Library and Elders from Mackay Region HACC to provide a variety of engaging activities for students to experience reading as a fun activity. Some of the activities included puppet stories, speed book dating, magazines and music, comics, flashlight reading, creepy crawlies, various text related activities and Indigenous stories.


The aim of our Reading for Fun afternoons is to motivate our students to read and engage them in reading as a pleasurable activity. Being an active and engaged reader is a powerful support to other learning. Developing a love of reading can only benefit learning in general.


We plan to have a Reading for Fun afternoon every term.
