The Library Launches


The Library Launches

The fantastic library  newly stocked with gripping reads and comfortably furnished is the sought after space for students engaged in Reading for Pleasure! Whether JK Rowling’s latest instalment in Fantastic Beasts or Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist is the next stop on your reading journey, there is something exciting for every reader. And for those of you who are still planning your journey, will you be daring enough to follow the ‘Shivers Down your Spine Line’ on the Douay Martyrs Reading for Pleasure Tube Map? Or would you prefer to ‘Journey to Another World’?

For those lucky students who manage to find the current ‘Word of the Week’ in their reading book, bonus House Points are on the way. All you have to do is present the word to the librarian and provide the definition.

The Accelerated Reader programme has been successfully initiated in the library with all of our Year 7 and 8 students. Each student has been provided with a personal reading journal that they utilize both in class and during their library reading lessons. This record will plot every single stop on their reading adventure from Year 7 all the way through to Year 9.All aboard where does your adventure lead?
