Academic Curriculum

Year 7 Discovers the Library

Tech-free games sessions at the library

From Teacher-Librarian, Ms Sue Bognar

The early weeks of Term 1 have been a perfect time for our Year 7s to become familiar with the staff and resources of the senior library.

Religious Education classes have been researching the Catholic traditions of the school. They were very lucky to see primary sources from archives introduced by our archivist, Ms Venettia Miller. She talked to the students about images and artefacts, giving them a true feel for the events and people of the past.

Head of Green House, Mr Scott Coleman, asked us to host two lunchtime games sessions to give Year 7 students time to mix and get to know each other. No screens here – just face to face interaction. The sessions were a wonderful mix of discussions, negotiations and explanations. It was no use shushing, but productive noise is always worthwhile!

Many Year 7 wide reading classes came to access the fiction collection. The teacher-librarians – huge readers that they are – suggested titles for boys depending on their interests. We look forward to seeing these students throughout the year.
