Buddy books in the Minimbah Library

As I sat through the Year Six graduation ceremony on Tuesday night, it was lovely to hear so many students speak so fondly of their experiences with their Foundation buddies. This year, following on from a long-held tradition in the Minimbah library, our Year Six students wrote and illustrated a picture storybook for their Foundation friends. After weeks of planning, exploring ideas, changing ideas, refining, and illustrating we turned their stories into hardcover books to gift the Foundation students at a teddy bear picnic celebration.

It has been my pleasure to share in this writing experience with the Year Six students, they should be so proud of all they achieved, and I wish them all the best for the next part of their journey.

Thank you to all students for a wonderful first full year in the library since joining the Minimbah community. I look forward to sharing in many more stories with everyone in 2023. Have a wonderful break!
