SSHS 5 Min Play Competition
Last week we launched a state-wide short play competition in the Learning Place, Studio key S818115759, which closes on July 12. Visit the competition site for all details and some tips. Entries should be 5 mins or less in duration and be inspired by our theme – Time. The best plays will be shortlisted and two winners chosen for performance at our Spotlight evenings in October. Mario Calanna pharmacies have added additional incentive in the form of sponsorship of ipad minis for the winning playwrights.
Book Week Books
The CBC Shortlisted books have been announced. Check out which “Older Reader” titles. We focus on the Young Adult literature but you can scan all the shortlisted books in all categories on the CBC site.
The Qld Museum display boxes are of varying interest. Amphibians and Multi cultural hats were colourful in the past fortnight but our new displays are generating more interest. If you’re curious about “Simple Machines” or in looking at actual specimens of Antarctic Wildlife, we will have them on display until the 21st May.
Speaking of popular, our penchant for innovation and downright quirkiness is evident in our new lunchtime activity. With the weather cooling down, groups of students have been known to concentrate their spacial attention by working together on our 1000 piece jigsaw, Uluru Sunset by Sarina.
A big thank you to Ms Hall for donating dozens of novels, particularly contemporary fantasy novels. We shall relish reading them! Did you know that Game of Thrones is officially the most downloaded mini-series in the world? Such is the appeal of the fantasy genre. We have a wide selection of fiction genres – many of the new titles reviewed in our Red Hot Reading newsletter so you can sample them before you borrow them.
