Festival Of Action
It is inspiring to watch the Year 6 students embark on their Festival of Action and embrace the topics that they are most passionate about. It always begins in the Library. This is where they can find books, magazines and online resources about their chosen subject. This year, we have curated the best sites for kids taking action and put them together in an online Magazine, so our students can go to one place to start their safe search for what they need.
Here is the LINK for our Festival of Action online magazine so you can take a look.
How are waves made?
What kind of dinosaurs are there?

These are just some of the questions our little inquiring minds want to know!

We love each and every one of these tiny eulogies.
It's not just enough to keep the Library stocked and tidy. We are always looking for ways to innovate and to stay relevant to changing technology and an evolving curriculum.
