Library News Week Beginning 3rd February 2020 (41)
Harry Potter Day
We celebrated Harry Potter Day by showing the first movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, to a selection of the media studies students. During lunchtime we had Harry Potter colouring, origami and jigsaw making and then we held a Harry Potter quiz on Kahoot which was fun but loud.
Reading Challenge – Week 5
The Reading Challenge is going well, with most classes working hard at it but some to work a bit harder. Results have been posted on the library noticeboard and in the staffroom. Class 103 is in the lead with 455 points followed closely by Ms Hogan’s 2nd year English class.
We are asking students to design some bookmarks for our school - related to the library or reading or success. Posters are on library noticeboard and the closing date is the end of February.

They discussed their careers in film-making and editing, their college courses and a free upcoming programme designed to give young people an opportunity to be creative and develop filmmaking skills and talents for a future career in film. The programme will run for four months with one group of and will be held once a week at The Digital Hub on Saturdays.
