Christmas Reading Rewards!

Reading is its own reward. But from time to time we like to give a little something more to those students who demonstrate a love of reading to the rest of the class during SSR. Teachers select students for Reading Rewards tickets, which earn them trips to the school library during class for warm beverages, some tasty treats, and some bonus silent reading in a warm, comfortable and festive atmosphere!

On Wednesday the library shut down for lunch so the volunteers could attend the Volunteer Lunch & Christmas Party Extravaganza! We had festive gathering with a ton of tasty treats (Thanks to everyone who brought some, especially those who baked them themselves!) 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone on the Library Team.

Seeing in Technicolour

The first of in what we hope is a series of free lunch time concerts on the new school library stage went today and it was a big success!  Thanks to “Seeing in Technicolour,” a band of Lord Tweedsmuir senior students, who put on a great show.

A small but enthusiastic crowd of students was on hand to enjoy the music. We hope that word can spread that we can pack in even more people for our next show.

If you are a performer, either in a band or a solo act, we would love to give you the chance to perform on our stage in a future event!
