The school library will be hosting a BIG BUMPER BOOK QUIZ on Thursdays at lunch during September and October. Numbers will be restricted to 25 pupils. Those interested in signing-up should come and see Miss McAtamney in the library - the quizzes are very popular and we encourage pupils to sign-up early!
Miss McAtamney is very keen to hear what you've all been reading over the summer! Junior Book Club is held on Thursdays during lunch in the library. First year pupils and any new pupils are most welcome. This a fantastic way of making friends and settling into school life. The first book we will be reading is a magical and thought-provoking story called 'Wings' by James Lovegrove.
Pupils may have the opportunity to take part in the annual Kids' Lit Quiz – hosted by Wellington College Belfast (TBC). In the past we have won various prizes and have had great fun taking part, dressing up in favourite book characters, making mascots and doing the quiz heats during lunch-times. Over forty secondary schools in Northern Ireland usually take part (TBC). Have a go at some of the questions from previous years!
Junior Book Club members can take part in a book shadowing scheme run by colleagues and librarians in local schools. Various events such as author visits, workshops and collaboration with other schools take place over a number of weeks. This is usually in the Spring term – date to be confirmed.
