BGS Library trends for 2018
There are three fantastic Public Purpose projects underway in the Middle School. Year 5 is focusing on supporting the RSPCA; Year 6 is helping to raise funds for our sponsor child through World Vision; and Year 7 are raising funds for the Pyjama Foundation.
The Middle School Library is proud to raise awareness of these issues and the activities being undertaken to support them.
As Brisbane Grammar School turns 150 this year we are holding the BGS150 Reading Challenge and we're issuing the challenge to all English classes!
It's easy to be take part in - just get your English class involved and record your reading in your Reading Log (Years 5-8) or with your English teacher (Years 9-12). All books will need to come from the 'challenge categories', and you will need to read at least one book from at least three different categories. Keep a look out for the poster in your English classrooms to see all the categories and further terms & conditions.
Years 5-8 have until end of Term 2
Years 9-12 have until end of Term 4.
There are no prizes - its just a fun challenge that promotes reading across the school - but your class will be immortalised as BGS150 Reading Challenge champions for all of time.
Find your next great read in the BGS150 Reading Challenge!!
