Sharing Bilingual Stories

In Week 9 we are opening the Library every morning from 8:00-8:30am for all parents and students to join us for some stories. From 8:15am, we will have a guest reader who will share a picture book with the audience from their chosen language. Straight afterwards Mrs Nel will read the same story in English. We are hoping to raise the profile of different languages spoken in our community and celebrate the diversity of our students.

If you are available any morning in Week 9, please come and join us for this special event. A huge thank you to the parents and staff who have already offered their time to read us a story in another language! If anyone else would like to read a story in their Home Language, please email Mrs Nel at


Staff and Parent Reading

We have numerous Adult Fiction books and Non-Fiction books that can be borrowed from our Staff and Parent Reading section in the Prep Library. Feel free to pop by and borrow a book during the hours below.


Students have been receiving notes and reminder stickers during their Library times which are placed in their Student Record books to notify parents of overdue loans. If you feel this is incorrect, please email us at  so we adjust student loan accounts.

It is nearly the end of Term 2 and this is the time where we need to finalise all borrowing. Students have until the end of Week 8 to return or renew all of their Library books. Once their account is cleared, they are welcome to borrow for the holidays. Any outstanding overdue or lost Library books at the end of the term will be forwarded onto finance for payment to be added to school Term fee accounts.

For all the people that love basketball, this book is not only about life or having a famous dad or being twins with the most annoying baller but also shows you a few tips about basketball.
