End of Year Book Returns

Please note the dates below for book returns. These dates ensure that books are returned prior to students finishing for the year, allowing library staff to complete a stocktake and prepare text books required for the start of 2014. All Year 11 and 12 students have received a list of items on loan this week to prepare to return items by November 12. Please come and see Vanessa McKellar in the library or email if you need to check or discuss any items. Items lost or damaged beyond repair will need to be replaced. Thank you in advance for your help with ensuring that items are returned promptly by the final dates.


Year 8 Readers’ Cup team comes 2nd in the Regional Finals

Our Year 8 Readers’ Cup team The Novel Bunch, competed in the Regional Competition on Friday October 18 at Immanuel Lutheran College, against 16 other schools. After a huge night of heats and finals, the St John’s College team came first, GCCC came second, and the St. Andrew’s Anglican College team followed closely behind in third place. The Novel Bunch included Alisha Mens, Abela Appuhamy, Jesse Woods, Jordan Bull and Jake Coleman.  To prepare for the competition the team had to read seven novels plus one picture book and answer quiz questions based on each title.  For their efforts the students won four novels each, a medal, $25 book voucher and six books for the library. It was a great achievement by the team and a worthy prize for all of their hard work. The students are pictured below with Richard Harland, author of the steampunk novel they read, called Song of the Slums.
