Christmas Concerthttp://www.stpetersrochedale.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Christmas-Concert.aspxChristmas Concert<div style="text-align:justify;">It was a great community night celebrating the Christmas story and the Stars of Christmas. Special thanks to Katrina Woodfield, Anne Sennitt, Renee Elder and Chloe O’Reilly for leading this evening as well as all teachers who practiced with their classes. We thought the kids were terrific! Well done to Billie and Rohan for comparing the evening. It’s been really pleasing to read so many positive comments from the community about the evening. We are so glad you enjoyed it!</div> <div style="text-align:justify;"><br><img width="777" height="736" alt="christmasconcert2017.jpg" src="/community-news/PublishingImages/christmasconcert2017.jpg" style="height:547px;width:577px;margin:5px;" /></div>

I’ve included some links for reading sites that give parents (especially in younger years) hints to reading with your children. I’ve also included a list of favourite books that may help with Christmas present buying or library visits. I’ve started a list of online books from YouTube which may also help. The main message is keep reading! I remember as an 8-year-old sitting with my brothers and Mum as she read us the Hobbit! Writing Christmas cards and lists, letters to Grandparents, blogs, postcards and journals of holiday adventures are practical ways to have kids writing over the holiday.</p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/-OG2Q6pPQYw">https://youtu.be/-OG2Q6pPQYw</a> </p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/26PEcXwKkd0">https://youtu.be/26PEcXwKkd0</a> </p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/zXI9sWONadg">https://youtu.be/zXI9sWONadg</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlI5QkR1AW5fhx08yKwjkYoYSV7mbbK7w">https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlI5QkR1AW5fhx08yKwjkYoYSV7mbbK7w</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books/100-best-books/">https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books/100-best-books/</a> </p>
