Year 12 Quarantine Study Days in the Lilley Centre

This week the Lilley Centre has been filled with Year 12 students studying for their exams.  Instead of staying home for study block, the top two floors of the Lilley Center have closed to all other students for Year 12 Quarantine Study Days.  The Library was still open after school for all other students requiring a place to do their homework, read a book or find out information.  Occurring from Monday morning until Wednesday afternoon, teachers normally timetabled on were instead available to help students study for their exams during this period. We wish the Year 12 students the best of luck on all their exams this week.

Step Into a Book!

For Open Day this year, Miss Smith created some amazing banners of much-loved books for the steps near each of our three libraries. These included the book title and author, an image of the cover, and a quote from the author about reading or a quote from the book about reading or life in general.

Mr Hills then spent hours laminating and cutting them out, and our 7/8 Book Club boys gave up their lunchtime to put these up for us. They looked fabulous and we received many positive comments from the boys, the teachers and the visitors.

Sadly, the banners on the Centenary Library and Middle School Library steps did not attach well to the concrete and started to fall off, creating a safety hazard. However, due to their popularity, we’ve decided to have them re-printed on weather-proof vinyl and attached more securely so everyone can enjoy them again.

(A big thanks to the staff at St Rita’s Library for this idea)
