ANZAC Day http://www.spcthegap.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/ANZAC-Day-2016.aspxANZAC Day <p class="ms-rteElement-P">Our Year 6 students do a wonderful job in leading the school's ANZAC Day commemorations, using stories, images, dramatization, prayer and music throughout the ceremony. This is complimented by the school's inspirational representation at The Gap Community's ANZAC Day March and Service held each year. ​<br></p> <img width="1440" height="810" class="ms-rtePosition-2" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/ANZAC%20Day.jpeg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:342px;height:192px;" />​
Visit by Leigh Hobbs - Australian Children's Laureate 2016 - 2017http://www.spcthegap.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/Visit-by-Leigh-Hobbs---Australian-Children's-Laureate-2016---2017.aspxVisit by Leigh Hobbs - Australian Children's Laureate 2016 - 2017<p class="ms-rteElement-P">We have been honoured to have Leigh Hobbs, the Australian Children’s Laureate (for 2016 – 2017), as St Peter Chanel’s 2016 Author-in-Residence. We welcomed Leigh with a fabulous birthday surprise in the form of an amazing birthday cake and 500 accompanying cupcakes, depicting some of his book's characters. Leigh hosted an evening for parents, carers and children where he spoke of his work and his passion for reading, writing, drawing and literature in general. In a fun filled way, Leigh helped us discover his various characters, as well as unleash our own artistic talents! In addition, Leigh worked with all classes (Prep – Year 6) several times during the week to develop the students’ English and artistic skills and their passion for literature. This initiative reflects the wonderful partnership between the school and our Parents and Friends Association. ​<br></p> <img width="2826" height="1800" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Leigh%20Hobbs.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:596px;height:363px;" />​
Book Week - Saturday August 19 – Friday August 25http://www.spcthegap.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/Book Week.aspxBook Week - Saturday August 19 – Friday August 25<p class="ms-rteElement-P">​The CBCA celebrates its 71st Anniversary of the Book of the Year Awards in 2017 from Saturday August 19 – Friday August 25. The Book Week theme this year is <strong>Escape to Everywhere</strong>. </p> <img class="ms-rtePosition-2" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Brian%20Faulkner.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:113px;height:121px;" /> <p class="ms-rteElement-P">To help us to promote the value of reading, literacy, book fun and Australian writers and illustrators we were very fortunate to have Mr Brian Falkner work with our Year 4, 5 and 6 students from March 20 - 22 to create a collective story.</p> <p class="ms-rteElement-P">Brian lives on the sunny Gold Coast and has written many stories. Some of his titles include 'Northwood', 'Brainjack', 'The Super Freak', 'The Real Thing', and 'The Flea Thing'. Brian says that he always wanted to be a writer, even at school, but it took him thirty years to realise his dream with his first junior novel published in 2003.</p> <img class="ms-rtePosition-2" src="/news-and-events/PublishingImages/Andrea%20Gallagher.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:108px;height:163px;" /> <p class="ms-rteElement-P">The Prep - Year 3 children will enjoy working with Ms Andrea Gallagher from March 27 - 29. Andrea has written two books about a group of amazing grandparents and seniors in her life. Combining words into writing became her paid profession a long time ago and she has learned a lot about how words can move people (particularly little learners!). </p> <p class="ms-rteElement-P">After playing around with rhyme and alliteration in children's stories as a hobby and knowing that she had a whole lot of cool seniors just waiting to be the stars of a story (whether they knew it at the time or not), she came up with the idea for her two books 'Superstar Grandmas' and 'Mega-rad Grandads'. ​<br></p>
