 The school library will again be running the very successful Summer Reading. You need to get a signed permission form which can be collected from the library or downloaded from the school website. You have to have all your library books returned. 

The library will be opened for issues between 8:30am – 5:30pm on Friday 14th and Monday 17th December.  Your parents are most welcome to come and help you select books. This means you get to choose eight books to read over the Summer Holiday and return them when you come back to school.

Any queries please contact Emma McGill on phone 233-1339 or email

Hi all,

If you still have any library books out you need to return them ASAP please! A senior will come around classes and collect any books that have been brought back.
This week until Friday the library will be completely closed all day, so that I can get the stocktake completed....... but the Scholastic Book Fair "Paws for Books" will be open before and after school each day.
