STORYTIME 11am 27th MAY
Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centers, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.
This campaign aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. The chosen book for 2015 is 'The Brothers Quibble' written and illustrated by Aaron Blabey. You may like to encourage your child to share the story with you or retell their favourite part. Happy Reading!

NATIONAL SORRY DAY
National Sorry Day is an Australia wide observance held on May 26th each year. This day gives people the chance to come together and share the steps towards healing for the Stolen Generations, their families and communities. Stolen generations refer to Indigenous Australians who were forcibly removed from their families and communities.
The first National Sorry Day was held on 26th May 1998 one year after the tabling of the report Bringing them Home - May 1997. The report was the result of an inquiry by the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission into the removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families
