Library News | Preparatory School
This year we have extended our library opening times to allow for more students to utilise the Library and enjoy quality literature. We are open every morning before school from 8:00 to 8:30am, during first break each day from 11:00 to11:30am and at second break on Monday through to Thursday from 1:30 to 2:00pm. By opening the doors more often, we hope to see more students borrowing books more frequently and enjoying the puzzles and games that the Library has to offer.
Our Library staff this year have remained the same, and you may contact us on the emails below if you have any queries.

Summer Reading Challenge
It has been wonderful hearing about all of the Summer Reading that has taken place over the break; it seems like most of the boys have really enjoyed the motivation to read more! We have extended the challenge slightly to allow boys to log more reading, and they now have until the end of Week 3. For those students in Kindergarten and Year 1, we will take paper records from students or emailed lists from parents. Students in Years 2 to 6 will be required to log their minutes in our online form. From there we will calculate the totals and announce the winning class, which will receive a class library valued at $300!
Dhiran in Year 1 has done exceptionally well in the challenge. His father says, “The Challenge really motivated him and he did more than I expected.” Well done, Dhiran! We can’t wait to see how much everyone else has read.
