The Michael Warde Library

DSC_6098Year 8 pupils visit the library every week with their English teacher but are also encouraged to use the library before and after school to research projects. In Year 8 the pupils participate in a Library Skills Programme to enable them to use the facilities effectively.

Issuing books is now done by fingerprint recognition and each Year 8 pupil will have their fingerprint scanned on their first visit to the library. A new state of the art security system has also been installed.

There are many events and competitions for Year 8 pupils throughout the year including the Year 8 Christmas Poetry Competition in December, World Book Day in March, and School Book Week in April. Information on all Library events can be found on the Library News page on the main school website.

Our Library is named after Mr Michael Warde who was our first School Principal back in 1966 when the school was opened. It was officially opened by him in December 2005.
