Culled another 200 books today. Some good titles but so worn and faded that not worth keeping. The kids will never take them out if they look like that. Also who thought that primary kids would read Bernard Cornwell, Jane Austen and Lorna Doone, the unabridged versions? Had a good chat with Jodie who wants to know more about children’s fiction and had a good response from the staff re the geek club ( professional reading club, once a week/fortnight based around improving classroom practice.) Culled books should be winging their way to Crossroads to help those schools more needy than us.
Became part of the 21st C learning group and attending the meeting at the Fortis Centre. Looks like we will be working on collaboration between us and our main feeder school. Emphasis on collaboration between staff and students, hopefully using some of older students to develop mentoring skills.
