MILTABURRA Area School joined many schools around Australia in celebrating National Simultaneous Storytime.

This annual story time, which is in its 14th year, aims to encourage young Australians to read and enjoy books.

It also aims to promote the value of reading and literacy using an Australian children's book that explores age appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum and the pre-school Early Learning Years Framework.

This year's book was 'Too Many Elephants' by Ursula Dubosarsky.

Wirrulla A grade footballer Robbie Marshall read to students, staff and parents in the Miltaburra Area School library.

Mr Marshall works on a farm in the Wirrulla area during seeding but also works at Smoky Bay on the oyster leases.

Principal Mike Ford introduced Mr Marshall and everyone enjoyed having the story read to them by this young role model footballer.
