Greetings from the library,

Our Reading Rangers After School Book Clubs have been busy this month with sharing stories and Christmas craft. Group 3 – Year 1 members enjoyed a story read by our visiting storyteller, Mrs Teena and coloured our Nativity scene which is displayed behind Mrs Mamata’s desk. Years 2 – 3 members made beautiful Christmas cards to take home to family. Thank you to all children who participated in our various groups throughout the year. We will send out a letter at the commencement of Term 1 in readiness for 2022.

We have now drawn the winning entry for the $25 QBD Gift Card, for those who have read additional books outside Class Library Time. This term we received over 500 entries! The winner for Term 4 is Peilla from Year 3. Congratulations Peilla, we hope you have fun choosing some lovely books for your home library. Keep on reading!

We really appreciate good library manners and especially during Class Library Time. This term’s winning class have been great readers and shown exceptional behaviour when in the Library. Thank you Year 6C and Mrs Mennie. They will enjoy a Library Party with snacks and games on Thursday. Well done to the many students who have shown respect in this space and enjoyed borrowing throughout the year. You brighten our days.

Year 6C

A group of Year 4 students have been hosting craft for the various grades at Makerspace during lunch break. Students have had fun creating and crafting all sorts of things. Thank you girls for giving your time to assist your fellow students.

Lunchtime Craft

We now have three Library Monitors who assist with shelving, reading to the infants and tidying books. Noah, Reid and Aria dedicate time before school and during lunchtime to help out. We really appreciate their assistance and enthusiasm. Mrs Carseldine and I also appreciate the many other students who enjoy helping in this space.

Scholastic Book Club Issue 8 orders must be submitted online by Wednesday 24 November 2021. An email has been sent to all our Primary parents and guardians with a link to the Scholastic Book Club.  You may browse the catalogue here and place your orders.

As school holidays are upon us, we encourage you to visit your local library. Moreton Bay Region libraries have various free activities you may book your child into, and the Summer Reading Club which offers prizes and incentives for books read during this time. For further information contact your local library.

It has been a wonderful year for our Library and every day brings joyous moments with our students. Thank you to all the wonderful students who enjoy the Library space, who come in to say hello, read and borrow books, participate in activities and craft, and who help out.

We are so blessed by your presence, and you are the reason we are here.  May God bless you and keep you safe and happy during the holiday season.

Mrs Mamata and Mrs Carseldine – Librarians
