Well done to all the students who read The Fall by Tristan Bancks in preparation for our excursion to the Writer’s Festival tomorrow. We held our Book Club today and it was great to hear so many great ideas and opinions about the plot, characters and the ending. Just a reminder that students can bring money tomorrow if they wish to purchase books from the Festival or they may bring copies of Tristan’s books to be signed.
Our next book for the month of April is The Blue Cat by Ursula Dubosarsky, which has also been selected for the CBCA 2018 Shortlist. I look forward to hearing what students think about it next term. Happy reading!
Thank you to the students who joined me for our Book Club meeting today where we discussed Garth Nix’s Frogkisser! It was great to hear lots of different opinions and thoughtful discussion. Our next book is A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle. Enjoy!

Well done to the students who came to our final Book Club for 2014. We discussed the classic – A Wrinkle in Time – with some very mixed reviews from students. It was interesting to compare how literature for young people has evolved from the 60s to today.
A big thank you to all the students who took part in Book Club this year. We will start fresh with some new novels in 2015!
