From Our Libraries T1 W6 2021
Opening Hours – Secondary School
A reminder that the Lighthouse is only open until 3:30pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. Students are asked to sign in and out if staying any afternoon.
Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 7:30am-4:30pm
Tuesday and Friday 7:30am-3:30pm
Canteen staff are serving breakfast at the Lighthouse Café on the Secondary Campus each morning between 7:45 and 8:20am. An excellent option for students coming to school early for training or rehearsals.
Reading Club – Junior School
Each Wednesday morning the Junior School library is open from 8am for students wishing to come to Reading Club. Reading Club (as opposed to a Book Club) is simply a time for students to come, sit and enjoy reading a book of their choice. They may pair up with buddies and read to each other, or sit and listen to a teacher read a story – there might even be special guests reading to them some weeks! Students are welcome to arrive any time after 8am and need not necessarily stay for the whole time if they would like to go outside and play as per regular morning routines.
Students from Years 5-10 have been asked to contact the library if they would like to be considered for our Readers Cup teams. Readers Cup is a state-wide competition organised by the Queensland branch of the Children’s Book Council of Australia. Students are required to read and study 5 books and then compete as a team against other regional schools at a trivia-style event.
Year 1-12 students at Faith have access to a shared collection of eBooks through our Wheelers ePlatforms. Download the app or read books directly through your browser – you’ll find instructions on the home pages below. eBooks are available 24/7, easily transported and will never be overdue. They are a great option when travelling, or just when students would like a change or can’t find a hard copy of a book they really want to read.
A hive of activity
Both our libraries are a hive of activity at lunchtime and at the Secondary School this continues after school. Students have been enjoying Chess Club, craft and maker activities and outdoor games.
