  • Student Librarian Training Complete!

    Congratulations to all our Student Librarians for completing their training

    After six Wednesday Lunchtime training sessions, our lovely Year 7 student librarians, have been awarded their shiny new badges and a certificate for their hard work. All our student librarians now know how to process books, find particular books in our huge library and navigate the non fiction section. To celebrate their success and newly elevated position the students created their own summer display for us in the Learning Lounge. We are so proud of them all!

    Well Done!
