I like to read for many good reasons,

It’s brilliant fun in every season.


Whether I’m happy or whether I’m sad,

Whether I’m bored or I’m just plain mad.


I whip out a book and it sets me free,

It’s relaxing yet thrilling, it lets me be me.


It helps me forget about all other things,

so I can live in my palace, surrounded by kings.

Recently I asked all Cabra students if they would tell us their reasons for reading. We even offered a $20 Book Voucher for the best, most imaginative response. It would be an understatement to say that we were bowled over by the number and quality of the replies. We are still accepting entries till the end of Week 3 with the winner (or winners) being announced in the Week 4 College Newsletter.

So keep your “Reasons for Reading” coming in till Friday 31 October!

  3. I love reading I have made mrs mills mad with my reading. Warrior cats are the best made her order most of the books and firestar are better then tigerstar when the battle comes three will come four or the darkness with come to destory us. Then we will died. Warriors cats by Erin hunter is the best with the awesome firestar to the evil brokenstar to the sweet snowfur to the means kits. Warrior will take your mind away forever and ever.
