“A reader lives a thousand lives”
Ssshhh…Katherine Warington Library is currently undergoing an exciting development! As we wait for our fully stocked library to be built and ready for opening in September 2020, we have a range of methods to support students’ reading in the coming months.
Books, books, books…
From September 2019 our library will provide students with a selection of reading material from fiction to subject supportive literature. Access to these texts will be supplemented with a range of e-books which can be accessed electronically.
The Big Purple Challenge
In order to encourage reading and to improve literacy, students will be challenged to read 12 books from a select reading list by the end of the academic year. This reading list will be extensive and diverse to support all students to achieve success yet will appeal to all bookworms!
When students have completed the challenge, they will be awarded 10 house points and will also be entered into a draw to win some exciting reading related prizes.
