We are delighted to announce the introduction of Renaissance Star Reading! This is a complete online assessment of your child's reading and will provide accurate information about their actual reading age. It will also show which areas a child needs to focus on in order to consolidate and further their progress. Assessments start this week!!
Reading Matters!!
We are so grateful to Mrs Curtis for all the time and energy she has spent in the Acacia library. This week she has made a display of all the new books that Mr & Mrs Curtis and the Teens donated to the school - the display books are to be read in the library and not taken out until they have been rotated and find their way back onto the regular book shelves.

Message from Mrs Siavwapa - Many of the library books have missing pages - if anyone finds loose pages anywhere, please return them to the Book Clinic in the library where they'll be reunited with their "mother"!!
