Dear Parents


 We have been eagerly awaiting the completion of our new Library Information Centre and are delighted to invite everyone in our school community to the grand opening

NEXT MONDAY 22nd FEBRUARY 11.00 a.m.

 Festivities will commence promptly at 11.00 a.m., so do come along and join in our celebration. Children and parents assemble outside the library for a blessing, short formal ceremony and ribbon cutting. Jill Eggleton, an international Literacy Consultant and prolific children’s book author is a special guest.

 You are warmly invited to stay for a picnic lunch with your children in the grounds after the celebrations.

 A Book Fair will be set up in the LIC (Library Information Centre) and we hope parents will be kind enough to consider donating a book to our new library. Scholastic books can be viewed and donated to the library at the following times:

 Monday 22nd February                   1.30 p.m. – 3.00 p.m.029

Tuesday 23rd February                    9.00 a.m. – 5.30 p.m.

Wednesday 24th February               9.00 a.m. – 5.30 p.m.

Thursday 25th February                   9.00 a.m. – 5.30 p.m.

Friday 26th February                        9.00 a.m. – 1.30 p.m.


Most parents will be attending a “Getting to Know Your Child” Conference during the week and could combine this visit with the Book Fair.

On Friday 26th February Junior and Middle School students are encouraged to dress up as a favourite book character. We will parade and admire each other at 9.00 a.m. in the hall or outside, weather permitting. (Seniors will be at their swimming sports).

 If any parent is able to dress up in a brand new Geronimo Stilton or Clifford costume at this time (or anytime during our Book Fair Week) to add to the fun of the event, we would love to hear from you. Please contact Caroline in the library.


We look forward to seeing you come along and help us celebrate this special event.
