Cover 2 Cover Reading Challenge

With the NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge over for 2019, it is time to focus on our internal wide reading challenge – Cover 2 Cover.

This will run during term 4. Students will be competing against their peers, homeroom groups and there will even be a battle between the junior grades and senior grades to determine who are the most committed readers at the college.

Students will be issued with a reading log to fill in. Points will be awarded for each book read, with bonus points given for books featured on recommended reading lists that have been prepared. There will be prizes for the most devoted readers and homerooms. 

Also, we will have a guessing contest where students will need to identify from a selected list of teachers, their favourite book of all time. 

More details will be provided in upcoming newsletters.

 

Library Services for Year 12’s during the HSC Exam Period

Local libraries are expected to be busy in the lead up to (and during) the HSC Exam period. For our Year 12’s who may want somewhere quiet to study are more than welcome to use the library during this time. They will also be allowed to borrow as normal, provided that they do not have any outstanding items. Please note that items in the HSC Closed Reserve Collection are available for overnight loan only.
