Warwick Academy Senior Library

Fall Term 2015


Season's Greetings to all Parents,

Thank you for taking the time to read the first edition of our Senior Library newsletter. It will be sent to you at the end of each term and will include a brief overview of key Library initiatives as well as a selection of literacy resources. Please feel free to contact me directly with any comments or suggestions which you may have.

Kind regards,

Françoise Wolffe

New Research Database (IB students)

With Questia School, your son/daughter will enjoy access to accurate and reliable information via a huge digital library of scholarly books and journal articles. They will be able to create their own individual digital workspaces to help them better organize and cite their research and view video-tutorials to guide them through the paper-writing process. (Please note that login details were provided to IB students during their U-Prep).

Graphic Novel Festival (Y7-Y13)

The 2016 Library Literacy Campaign will celebrate storytelling through Graphic Novels and Comic Strips. If your son/daughter is a budding artist or writer, please encourage them to join one of the few workshops on offer and produce their own Comic Strip. Students will also be exposed to the history of cartoons and discover multicultural authors via cross-curricular activities in the classroom, Library displays and more. Stay tuned!

Star Wars Read-alikes

Like other pop culture phenomena, the adventures of Luke, Leia, and company have long been a popular choice for readers. The latest eagerly anticipated entry in the film series, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, will be released in Bermuda this December—guaranteed to create even more interest in the Star Wars universe. For the perfect books to satiate your hunger for the latest Star Wars titles, please visit the Library page on FROG.
