Library Borrowing

We are back! It has been lovely having students back in the Library this week, all of the boys have been so excited about borrowing. To ensure that we keep cohorts of students separate and safe, there are new borrowing times. Please check the new daily timetable below to see which day your son will borrow. Infants students are reminded to bring a Library Bag if they wish to borrow.

Overdues

With students away from the Library for so long, there are lots of books that are overdue. Students are reminded to please return all books as soon as they can. This will enable them to borrow new books and will ensure that the end of the term isn’t a mad rush to find books borrowed from Term 2! Overdue lists will be sent home with students in the coming weeks.

Author Spotlight – Mem Fox

Mem Fox was born in Melbourne, grew up in Africa, went to drama school in England, and came back to Australia in 1970, aged 23. In 1983 Mem became Australia’s best-selling writer with Possum Magic, her first book. She has written over 40 children’s books and several non-fiction books for adults. She has received many civic honours and awards, and three honorary doctorates. Her recent book: I’m Australian Too, takes her back to where she started: her passion for Australia. She hopes it will spark spirited discussions about Australian-ness, create an awareness of Australian immigration over the centuries, and begin to calm the rising racism in her country.
