Bookopoly Launches in the Middle School
Every form class in the Middle School will play the Bookopoly game! Once a week the dice will be rolled to move each class along the board and every square has a task. Each student (and teacher) who completes the task will score points for their class. The class with the most points at the end will win a prize. See the Bookopoly LibGuide for more info!
June is Audiobook Month - so if you have not yet already check out the collection, now is the perfect time!
We have over 1000 book titles available to listen to via the ePlatform and Overdrive collections- visit the BGS Library page to browse the titles or download the apps and log in with your BGS credentials.
The theme for this year was Generations and entries were judged by Mr Stewart Service, our former BGS Head of Art and a keen photographer himself.
Star Wars Day lasts a WEEK at BGS
Our wide collection of Star Wars books are some or the most heavily borrowed, so of course we celebrate May the Fourth with Trivia; Family Feud and Droid races!
The BGS War Memorial Library is showcasing WWII uniforms and weapons curated by some of our Year 12 boys and sported by our versatile Library mannequins.
Anzac Day badges are also available for purchase for $5 with proceeds supporting Legacy (families affected by war).
The War Memorial Library is open during breaks 1 and 2 on Thursday and Friday this week and the badges are also available outside Middle School Reception. Thank you to Mr Price for putting this wonderful display together.
Book clubs have commenced in all 3 libraries so come join in the fun!

What seems to be a quiet, rural town has something much more sinister going on... and it all leads back to the water tower.
Is there something in the water? Is it safe to drink?
The Year 8's have been busy borrowing books for their English unit studying the Science Fiction genre. Dystopian worlds, advanced technology, space exploration, time travel, parallel universes, and extraterrestrial life are all being unpacked by these Year 8 readers.
