National Science Week
To support in the celebration of Science Week the Library had a glass themed book station set up at the Year 6 science day event. Boys from Prep and Junior School collaborated to develop their own light source fitting with this year’s theme of Glass: More than meets the eye! Boys used the books to conduct some additional research that could inspire their creations. It’s great to give the boys access to books as an additional source when conducting research. The books in the Prep Library have been checked by our fantastic team and allow for boys to have fast access to a reliable source. We were so glad to be part of the Science Week experience.
Book Review by Nick Kartsiotis- Feathers for Phoebe by Rod Clement
Feathers for Phoebe is a brilliant book that tells the story of how important it is to love yourself. No matter what you change and how you look, you are always special!
