Ms L Wootton —

Library Week 7 - 11 September.

Covid Level 2 or not, Library Week is on again!

There will be competitions throughout the week in the Library with fabulous chocolate prizes to be won, plus spot prizes during the whole school DRESS-UP-AS-A-FICTIONAL-CHARACTER DAY on TUESDAY 8th September (gold coin donation).

The Poet-Tree

Celebrating National Poetry Day in the Library with Year 10s contributing their 'Found Poetry' to the Poet-Tree last week. Students visiting the library have been invited to make their own found poem by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from old library books and reframing them to make something new. Year 7s have been inspired and decorated the Poetry Tree with poems created in their class poetry unit this week.

Year 9s helped fold many paper planes in anticipation of Library Week with its airport border theme.

Out On The Shelves Display

The Rainbow Youth group have put together a fabulous 'Out On The Shelves' display to share resources that aim to support rainbow people to find stories that represent their identities in positive and affirming ways.

More bookish displays in the Library

The Library TV provides an excellent platform to showcase new and popular books in the library. These book reviews are on a continuous loop and are regularly updated. Thanks to Heidi Palmer (Student Librarian) for displaying some interesting old books that were found in a staff member's office. There are some beautiful marbling techniques and illustrations to see between their pages. They also show us what Columba Old Girls were reading many years ago.
