Our very first homegrown story, written and beautifully illustrated by the Room 8 students of Gore Main School.

It is called Reach for the Stars, Jimmy a fabulous tale about Jimmy their class mascot. The story features many of Gore’s famous icons as Jimmy goes on his adventure around the district, searching for his Room 8 friends. The young authors and illustrators have worked very hard on this project and are justifiably proud of their fabulous, creative book.

There is a quiz written by the children to collect from the start of the StoryWalk®. Come down to the library afterwards to check the answer sheet provided by Room 8 students.

StoryWalk® is an international initiative that aims to get people out and about in nature together, combining the benefits of physical exercise and reading an uplifting tale to support mental health and literacy development, especially in children.

StoryWalks® have been installed in 50 states and 13 countries including, Germany, Canada, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia, Pakistan and South Korea! They are always received with appreciation.
