This Friday, our students are looking forward to meeting a world renowned Canadian Children's Author who will be visiting our school as part of our Arts and Athletics Enrichment Program. Philip Roy will be speaking to our students about the writing process and how to create stories. Our own young writers and readers are very excited to learn about how Mr. Roy uses his imagination to help him write his books. Student's will have an opportunity to purchase author signed books on Friday ($11.00 -$1200 each). You can find out more about Philip's books by visiting: http://philiproy.ca.
This visit will kick off our new Reading Club being offered in the library as well as our participation in this year's Silver Birch Awards. Stay tuned to hear about our new shipment of award nominated children's books coming to our library for our students to try out. They will also have the opportunity to choose their favourite authors and cast their votes for these national awards.
What a great way to promote literacy and a love for reading! Thanks to our librarian, Mr. Tamblyn for arranging this for our school!
