November 2014

The Golden Dragon Book Awards have been launched in Hong Kong!

We are very excited about the first Golden Dragon Book Awards where children get a chance to read 8 books in their age range and vote for their favourite.


We have many of the books in the library already, more arriving every day, and the children have started to read them avidly in preparation for voting in January 2015. You can see three of our favourites profiled below.


You can also find out more about the awards, including which books are in each age category, on their website:

Tony Wilson @ Peak School!

We were so lucky to be able to welcome the fabulous storyteller, Tony Wilson, to Peak School for a whole day. He had all the children, from year one to year six, enthralled, especially when he played his banjo! Tony Wilson held 4 sessions and helped the children make up their own stories which he then recorded and uploaded. You can listen to all the stories by clicking the play arrows below.

Library displays

We thought you might like a peek at one of our most recent library displays. We often pull out books to highlight a collection, an author or an event and we felt it important to recognise Remembrance Day on 11th November. The student librarians got involved at lunchtime and helped us to make the poppies.

Divali celebrations at Peak School

We were so pleased that Aman from year 6 offered to give a presentation about Divali during one of our lunchtime library sessions. The children really enjoyed listening to him talk and watching the video he played.
