Cawdor Primary School with Maracas

Last week Year 6 students at Cawdor Public School (NSW) staged a dramatic telling of the 2019 National Simultaneous Storytime book – Alpacas with Maracas by Matt Cosgrove. We hear their performance was so good they had to do an encore!

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is an annual event run by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously by children all over the country.

Well done to Cawdor’s fabulous performers!
