Library News | Preparatory School
It was wonderful to see the boys back at school this week and we loved hearing all the fantastic holiday stories! We especially loved to hear that the boys read many books over the break and also recorded their minutes!
Summer Reading Challenge
The Summer Reading Challenge is almost finished! We will ask students in Week 3 to let us know their total minutes read over the holidays. Remember that the class with the most minutes wins extra funds for their class library.
Good luck boys!
Over the holiday break the boys were permitted to borrow books! Can you please ensure that this week your son returns all books they may have borrowed over the break so that they can start borrowing straight away.
Library Champions Expressions of Interest
We are looking for a team motivated and dedicated Library Champions (Library Monitors) for 2021. Boys in years 4, 5 and 6 are eligible to apply using the form linked below. Library Champions are required to do 2 or 3 duties a week during the below times:
- before school from 8:10-8:30am
- lunch time from 1:40-2:00pm
- after school from 3:20-3:40pm
If your son catches a bus or has a great deal on before or after school commitments, he may find it difficult to take on this responsibility.
If your son is interested, please have him complete the Google Form by the end of Week 3. If successful in this first stage of applications he will be required to undergo training during Weeks 4-5. If he completes the training satisfactorily, he will be notified before the end of the term.

In considering what to write about this week, I have made a conscious decision to look…
There have been no changes since I last wrote about our plans for Week 4 and 5, but I would like to request your ongoing assistance in reinforcing to your sons the current public health messages.
I am excited to finally be welcoming students back to school over the next two weeks….
