Happy Holidays and I hope you all have a fabulous break.

To all our lovely students who are leaving (especially my Lead Librarians) I wish you all the best for your future.


Please keep in touch – I love seeing you going on and doing well!

To all returning students, have a great break and see you in 2011.

12 days of Christmas at Queenspark School (Junior)

As part of the 12 days of Christmas being celebrated in the junior school this year, the teachers needed a visiting storyteller. What an opportunity for Ms. Hill to grab her trusty horse, crowns, sword and magic potion and ride off to the rescue!!

A huge thanks to all my lovely Room 6, 7 and 8 helpers who put on their costumes and AHAAA! rode off on the adventure with me.
Special thanks to Ryan, Tyrell and Evelyn for their fabulous roles as:
a Young and Handsome Prince, a Wily and Wicked Wizard, and the Snow Queen with the cold, cold heart!

You can see a photo of us in action up on the Library window and here …
