National Simultaneous Storytime

19 May 2014

Once again Prince Alfred College will be participating in the Australian Libraries and Information Association’s National Simultaneous Storytime when thousands of children around Australia will sit down and read the same book on Wednesday 21st May. But as a point of difference our boys will be entertained by Mr Steer’s Year 8 drama class with a theatrical adaptation of the book Too many elephants in this house. National Simultaneous Storytime is an important annual campaign that aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. Now in its 14th successful year it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy using an Australian children’s book that explores age appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Grades F to 6 and the pre-school Early Learning Years Framework. https://www.alia.org.au/nss

The Kings Speech Competition

As part of Prince Alfred College’s commitment to improving the public speaking skills of our students, the King’s Speech Competition will this year take place on Monday 26 May in the ANZAC Hall. This ‘in-house’ Public Speaking competition gives students the opportunity to express their own opinions on a range of issues to an audience consisting of parents, staff and other students. Competitors also demonstrate their ability to ‘think on their feet’ by constructing and presenting an impromptu speech. Winners in each division receive the Lionel Logue Award and are determined by a panel of independent adjudicators from the Rostrum organisation. All parents/guardians of Prince Alfred College, as well as old scholars, are welcome to attend. Division times are as follows: Preparatory (8.30 to 10.30), Middle (11.00 to 12.50) and Senior (1.30 to 3.30). Please RSVP to Mark Bailey via email mbailey@pac.edu.au if you would like to attend.
