Library Awards

Junior Librarian Award

Every term we choose pupil librarians from our Years 5 and 6. These children are instructed by the school Librarian in how a library functions and they help with running and monitoring the library during lunch times.

This term our librarians have done an excellent job and to thank them they were presented at the final assembly this morning, Wednesday 20th December, with a Junior Librarian Award together with their library portraits.

Well done!

Your teachers will be selecting Junior Librarians for next term after the holidays so make sure you let them know if you would like to help in the Library.

There was great excitement with many children going home with early Christmas presents.
