Welcome to the Learning Centre!
The Learning Centre is consolidating its role as the 'Learning Hub' of the school, with students and staff taking advantage of the range of services offered. We are continually promoting reading and literature and while our primary students have always been keen borrowers, the secondary students have shown considerable improvement in their level of borrowing.

Premier's Reading Challenge 2013
It was wonderful to see 50 students awarded a Premier's Reading Challenge Certificate during a recent primary assembly. Students, mainly in Years 4 - 6, were challenged to read a certain number of books in a given time. The titles of these books were recorded and signed off by parents. Pictured below are the students from 4AO with their PRC certificates. Well done everyone.
Year 6 Readers' Cup
The Year 6 Culminating activity for Term 3 was a 14 team Readers' Cup Competition. Students had read eight titles and answered questions regarding the content of the books. The overall top point scorers were The Frenchies team who won on the second tie breaker. Congratulations to the team members Troy Dowrick, Sebastian Emery, Angel Taylor, Nick Robinson, Moira Cairns and Nicola Meyer (Pictured below L to R)
Year 5 Readers' Cup
For the first time this year our Year 5 students took part in a Readers' Cup competition. Students were placed in teams and challenged to read the same five books. During the heats teams from each class were quizzed on the content of these books with the two teams scoring the highest moving forward to the final held in the RGC during Book Week. These 6 teams were watched by the rest of Year 5 who also took part in an audience quiz. The eventual winners were from 5SS - Christopher Wade, Greg Lewis, Jasper Mark, Chelsea Carpenter and Belinda Hotchin (pictured below). For more images go to our Readers' Cup page (click link above).
Book Week Visiting Authors - Dave Hackett & Steph Bowe
Students from Prep to Year 9 thoroughly enjoyed our visiting authors this year. The younger students were entertained and delighted by Dave Hackett's drawing workshops and our older students picked up creative writing tips from successful teenage author Steph Bowe.
