The Best Things in Life are Free

Last week the Year 3 classes enjoyed indoor fun with an excursion to the Beerwah Library and Community Hall and outdoor fun at Turner Park. The excursion was part of the Significant 72 Activities and was a fabulous way to connect, explore, read, relax, and play.

We are blessed to have a local library so close to the College and enjoyed a leisurely walk there together. On arrival, we were greeted by the friendly library team who spoke to each class and shared amazing library facts, details about borrowing, and the services they offer. Two highlights included the behind the scenes tour of the library workroom and the opportunity to read and play in the modern library spaces overlooking the lagoon.

Are you a member of your local library? If not, you can join via this link and return the form to the College Library or Beerwah Library teams. We can pass on the membership card to your child or you can collect it from the Beerwah Library. Consider setting aside a special time each week or fortnight to visit your local library to enjoy the wealth of collections, services, and events on offer and to foster a lifelong love of learning and reading along the way!
