It's here again and we’ll be taking part in the Skype Adventures and Bookmark Exchange Projects! This year's theme is:

Learn to Decode Your World!

This project involves matched schools making creative, homemade bookmarks to exchange with each other. It is a simple, fun way of sharing the joy and fun of books and libraries and of making new friends through school libraries worldwide.

We have been paired up with students from
Kendriya Vidyalaya Iiit Jhalwa from Uttar Pradesh, India,
Kwok Man School from the New Territories, Hong Kong,
Technical School Slavonski Brod from Slavonski Brod, Croatia &
Kiskunfélegyházi József A. Ált. Isk. Platán Utcai Tagintézménye in Hungary.

We will also connect with our partnered schools on Padlet, our school library blog, Edmodo and Skype as we make our bookmarks so that we can learn something about other cultures and different ways of life. So..

Keeping up with you... developing our collection

Of course, everyone is aware by now aware that our country’s current economic situation has impacted schools, and especially their libraries. This is even more so in the case of government assisted schools like ours.  

While our reading program is well known for its depth and variety of fun reads for our pre-teens and teens, budgetary constraints have meant that we have been unable maintain or develop our collection for the past 18 months and even though Mrs Pounder and Mrs Ramphal try, the fact is, our budget for new books has almost completely dried up...

We know that multiple studies show that extensive reading for pleasure not only increases anyone’s reading speed, understanding, vocabulary and facility for language acquisition, it improves all round academic achievement!
So please consider purchasing one or more books from our Amazon wish list that we may continue to provide our entire school community with the engaging and useful books for which we are known. When filling out the shipping information, we suggest choosing the option of shipping directly to the library.

Or, you may choose to purchase a book voucher for us at any RIK or Keith Khan book store. You may be able to claim a charitable deduction for books purchased and donated to the school. We encourage you to consult with your tax advisor regarding your gift-in-kind donation.

Thank you so much in advance!
