Principal Annie EngellennerThe students at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour School, Surrey Hills, have a special story time with their principal each evening during lockdown.

For half an hour each night, Principal Annie Engellenner welcomes every student by name on Google Meet before launching into two stories for students from Prep to Year 6. ‘For half an hour, the children are taken beyond the chaos of the world outside and given the opportunity to journey to a new land, enjoy an exciting adventure, build their imagination, and develop vital language and listening skills’, said Annie.

When times are unpredictable, routine can be invaluable. Annie is always open to new reading suggestions from her students to make times of lockdown a little more enjoyable.
