News from The Arthur Holt Library

This week, the Library has given over its walls, windows and electronic displays to the excellent work of some of our Year 10 boys. We were so impressed by some of the work that was completed for their Independent Projects that we felt compelled to grant it a wider audience.

Some were presented as videos, animations, or PowerPoint presentations. One involved creating a website to showcase a series of photographs showcasing the impact of Sydney’s lockdown, while another involved the creation of a series of podcasts on the Spanish flu.

Topics such as mental health were tackled from a variety of angles – everything from social media campaigns and videos to essays considering the links between poor mental health and social media use. Most of the boys in Year 10 have had an opportunity to look at each other’s work and no doubt be inspired it.

We’d also like to remind all staff that they are welcome in the Library at any time. You might want to look at the student work on display or borrow some books for the summer. Of course, students and their families are also welcome to borrow via our click and collect service.
