As soon as students show that they can read and comprehend texts at Level 25 (they have completed home reading program) they can move on to Lexile Reading. Students in this program read novels and answer questions about those novels on-line to gain points and awards. Certificates, ribbons and medals are awarded for milestones and significant effort in novel (chapter book) reading.
We now run one Book Fair each year, in August. Money raised is used to buy much needed resources for the Bilinba Centre.
We always need help with covering books. Any parents who have some spare time to help cover books, this would be greatly appreciated.
