Academic Curriculum

Holidays are a great time to read!

From the Co-ordinator of Library Services, William Roberts

With the holidays approaching it is a great time for reading.  If reading can be built into the routines of holiday life your sons can enjoy a calming and uplifting activity.

The library has all our fiction ebooks available over the holidays.

Students:  login using the first part of your College email i.e. msmith2021 and your College network password

Here are the last reading tips for 2017.  They come from Paul McDonald.

  • Give boys choice
  • Motivate guys to want to read by letting them choose texts they will enjoy. Find out what they want. Let them choose from a new, wider range of reading.
  • Boys like to DISCUSS things they read, but are often shy. Ask questions, engage them.


Note: In 2018 we will hold another parent seminar with visiting Author Will Kostakis, April 4 from 6.30 to 8 pm.  Put it into your diary now!
