Students listened to a story ‘I want a friend’ by Tony Ross. The story delved into the narrative of a little princess who started school and was eager to make friends. She had a difficult time until she realized there were lots of other children just like her who needed a friend and eventually became each other’s friends. It made a great read to encourage children to be make new friends.
