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!

 

Signature Program

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.
