Our Junior School students go all out for Book Week at Strathalbyn with the 2022 theme “Dreaming with your eyes open”.
On Friday 26 August 2022, it was Book Week at Tyndale Christian School – Strathalbyn and it was a delight to see our Junior School students dressed up in their favourite character costumes from well-known books and movies.
We were thrilled to see a lot of parents coming along to support their children, who dressed up in quirky and different character costumes. It was nice to see many parents were able to come along to take photos and support their children during these COVID-19 times.
Book Week is an important week for both teachers and school librarians, as educators want to highlight the importance of reading to children at a young age. Reading books in Junior School helps many students with spelling, pronunciation and builds their vocabulary. Furthermore, teaching and encouraging students to read early on can help them read more often, as the world we live in has been predominantly dominated by technological devices such as iPads and smartphones.
At Tyndale Christian School – Strathalbyn, one of our core values is ‘lifelong learning’. Our teachers encourage our students to immerse themselves in reading setting them up for success in their Senior years when they are required to interpret a variety of text types and write essays.
