Library News

Accelerated Reader is being used with our fantastic new year 7’s and our Year 8’s on both sites. We have decided to change the password for AR and all students should now be aware of this.

The school library will be open for students to access for break and lunchtimes and after school until 4pm when I am onsite. My timetable is on the doors of the library and will be made available on the Library Classrooms
