The Book Day Edition!
Things did not slow down after that! We hosted the fabulous Sonia Leong, started a new Library initiative and we are now collecting the votes for this year's Golden Dragon Book Award.

Book Character Parade
Each year we are struck by everyone's original, funny and quite frankly inspired ideas, and tell ourselves it will never get better and yet ... it does!

Time For Tea!
Of course, you don't have to wait for a Mad Tea Party to come in and ask us questions, or set up your own library account. We're open all day!
Our winners were Theo in Year 4 (ziplining) and Cody in Year 1 (shark's mouth)
Book Spine Poetry
The Year 6's did a spectacular job of creating their original pieces of poetry. They started by picking books off the shelf and piled them up to make some pretty great pieces of verse - some were hilarious, some were profound, and some were indeed worthy of MIC drop lyrics.

Drop Everything And Read!
And that's a wrap... until next year!
Visiting Author Sonia Leong
On 8th March we hosted author and manga artist Sonia Leong, who did not dissappoint!
She was a huge inspiration to the Year 5's and 6's when she went into the classrooms for workshops on how to draw manga, which is one of the most popular genres in our Library, and beyond.
She presented in the sports hall to the Year 3-6 classes speaking about how she became a Manga artist and the tricks to her trade. As an international student herself who went to study Economics and Politics in the UK before turning her sights to her real passion, her story was both interesting and inspiring to all of our students and they came up with well thought out and enlightened questions for our visitor.
