News from The Arthur Holt Library

With Year 12 out on exams, and Year 11 about to join them, you might imagine The Arthur Holt Library to be a bit quieter than usual. In actual fact, the absence of the Senior boys has left more space for the Middle School to come in and take full advantage of the return of the soft furnishings.

The beanbags and sofas had been relegated to storage, but the recent easing of COVID restrictions has meant that we were able to bring them back in time for the start of this year’s Premier’s Reading Challenge. Anyone looking to register should come and see Mrs Nolan in the library. We have also set up a display of books that have been included on the list and made sure that there are plenty spots in the lounge area for boys to curl up with a good book.

The library is also home to the Middle School Book Club. Less a formal book club and more an opportunity to discuss any and all books with some like-minded individuals, the club meets every Monday lunchtime under the stewardship of our Library Services Manager, Mrs Nolan.

The Arthur Holt is also home to Movie Club, a Senior School co-curricular that meets every Wednesday after school from 4pm to 6pm. Teaching and Learning Librarian Ms Raffaele carefully curates a selection of classic and modern films to intersperse with the boys’ own movie choices to keep the conversation lively! Be sure to look out for it next time you choose your co-curricular activities.

“Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.”
