Book Talks Entice Readers

During the first half of the year, we took each of our Year 8 Literature Circles classes down to the large Dymocks Bookstore in the City, where they were able to choose books for themselves, and choose books to add to our library collection. After a gunman was arrested in the Mall, however, we decided a better option would be to invite the children’s literature specialist from Dymocks to come up to the school instead, and promote the latest YA book releases to the boys.

This has proven to be a very popular event each time Abby has come to the school, with the boys avidly listening to her book reviews, and keenly adding reservations to the titles. Both of our libraries have overflowing fiction collections, and our boys settle easily into a culture of reading, with over 4000 books borrowed each term.
