Today the King's students and staff attended a special assembly to commemorate Anzac Day. The special assembly was held in the Performing Arts Centre and it was a very moving commemoration of King's students who lost their lives for their country.
To remember Anzac Day this year there is a display in the library. Photos are attached. The books in the display are available for students to borrow and we have lots more still on the shelves.
If you are interested in loaning one of the books in the display, just come and see Ms Schaumann who will set them free for you.
The books on display are both fiction and non-fiction and cover many different aspects of the war, there are both easy reads and more complex books.

This book is not an easy read, and because of the issues raised is a senior only book, but it is a great read, very gripping and even though you know how the story is going to turn out, the journey to get there is really interesting.
Do check out the website that goes with the book, there are excerpts from the book and from the tapes on there.
