Library Lover’s day

On Friday 18 February we will be celebrating Library Lovers’ day! This year we will be celebrating by sharing the books we love the most. Students are encouraged to share their favourite book with us when they visit the Library so we may add it to our wall of book recommendations. There will also be a competition running where students can fill in a bookmark with a review of their favourite book. Six winners across the School will be selected to choose a book as their prize.


The Scholastic Book Club Issue 1 is now out and available for parents and students to purchase their favourite books. Log on and order now; orders close on 21 February 2022. During Terms 1, 2 and 4 your son will be given a Scholastic Book Club catalogue. The Term 1 Book Club catalogues were handed out this week, and orders may be placed online using the LOOP system. Orders must be placed by Monday 21 February and will be delivered to the School and handed out to your son in class.
