Junior School Resource Centre

It was lovely to welcome your sons back after the holiday break. They are certainly looking refreshed and enthusiastic. Book Week is only 3 weeks away and we have a group of Year 4 and 5 boys reading and analysing the shortlisted books to compete in a quiz with neighbouring schools in the Readers Challenge on 23 August.

The annual Book Week Parade will be on Friday 26 August. This year being the 100th birthday of author Roald Dahl we are asking the boys to come dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl book character. I have been discussing this in library sessions and the emphasis is on creativity and using your imagination to create a costume from what you have at home, can borrow, by purchasing fabrics and accessories from places such as Spotlight and Red Dot. Judging by the boys' enthusiasm and ideas we are in for a fabulous day!

The Library has the collection of Dahl books and more have been ordered and are on their way if families would like to borrow from the Collection for inspiration.
