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!
The Centenary Library became home to the Year 8 “Land of Remorse” Creative Writing Signature Program.
The boys were tasked with producing a collaborative fantasy story and were extremely proud to present these to their families last night for Celebration of the Arts.
Throughout the week, the boys developed their story crafting skills through activities and workshops. We were also fortunate to have published author Jan Andrew Henderson share his art of storytelling and give the boys constructive help with their own stories. Although, possibly the highlight was the sensory immersive experience we had in the Roma St Parklands.
Book clubs have commenced in the Middle School and Centenary libraries, so come and join in the fun!
In this issue, dive into Dragon Legend, the second book in the bestselling 'Dragon Realm' series, with an exclusive extract!
Then, join us as we chat with Roosters star James Tedesco, all about his first book for younger readers and footy lovers, Hat Trick Teddy.
Plus we also chat with Eddie Woo, star math teacher and creator of 'WooTube', about his love of maths and brand new book in the 'Aussie STEM Stars' series.
Learn what it takes to be a journalist with our exract of Kid Reporter: The Secret to Breaking News, which will teach you how to find a scoop and do an interview.
And as always, we've got a stack of new books, activities, and things to learn and do! PLUS - poetry and book reviews. By kids, for kids!
