What’s on in Term 4

There are fantastic new reads in the Junior, Stage 3 and Senior Libraries available to all students currently, and students have been encouraged to borrow these during Library lessons and Wide Reading sessions. 

There are some big projects happening in the Library spaces across the school this Term:

  • K-4 Library: Stocktake in Week 8 (all books returned in Weeks 6-7)
  • Stage 3 Library: Generifying in Week 7 (all books returned in Weeks 5-6) 
  • Reading Room: Clearance Days in Weeks 5 and 6
  • Learning Commons: Updating all textbooks for new syllabus in 2024

Books and Bubbles

To bring our community together, the Inaburra parent and staff community are invited to come along to a casual and fun no-kids-around afternoon:

What: Books and Bubbles
Where: Stage 3 Learning Village
When: 4:00pm-5:00pm, Wednesday 1 November 

Through the afternoon, there will be a chance to chat about all things literature (and non-literature), share and receive book recommendations, browse a pop-up bookshop as well as mingle and relax over some (non-alcoholic) bubbles and canapes. A mixture of popular and new release adult fiction and non-fiction titles will be selected and available on the day. Credit card payment will be accepted.

If you would like to bring along some books you’ve read and would love to share about or pass on to others, feel free! If you have an empty to-read list and want a good recommendation for what to read next, get ready to be inspired.

It is a free event but for catering purposes, please RSVP and claim a free ticket via Humanitix by Monday 23 October via this link: https://events.humanitix.com/books-and-bubbles

The bookshop will be run by The Best Little Bookshop in Town, with 10% off all RRP offered to all people purchasing on the day. Additionally, a 10% donation will be given to the Inaburra Libraries – so come along and buy a new read for yourself and support the school in the process! 

If you have any questions about this event, please contact Mrs Emily You directly.

Inaburra Reading Challenge

The Reading Challenge has launched earlier this Term, with challenges running for Kindergarten, Years 1-2, Years 3-6 and Years 7-12 respectively. Each challenge level has somewhere between six to sixteen tasks to complete, and entries will be accepted until Term 4 Week 4 Friday 3rd November. Great prizes to be won!
