The end is nigh ...

For all our senior students the end of the year is nearly here. Next Thursday is the last day of school for all our seniors for the year 2010 before they head away on study leave prior to exams.

Wishing you all the best of luck for your exams. Next week I will post some helpful sites for study.

In the meantime All Books Are Due Back! Group teachers have all the current lists for all items currently issued to students and library assistants will be travelling the school every group time next week to collect books and save you the trouble of delivering them back yourselves. See how helpful we are?

New computers for our library

Our library is getting new computers. This is fantastic news! The benches are being installed today by Ants who has built them, and all the framing for them. We are very excited that this is happening because it will allow more students access to online resources when there are busy periods in the library. Another benefit is that it will take some pressure off our overbooked computer suites by allowing more classes which need computer access to book in to use the machines here.

It has been a great year for us here computer wise. We finally have a fully operating OPAC machine which is friendly to our network, complete with styley homepage, we have had almost no down time on our existing computers and there are now lots of students who are competent to help others do things on the OPAC and on the issues computer. Watch this space for photos of the completed project.
