Reading Hour
On Thursday 20 September, the Shanahan Learning Centre hosted ‘Reading Hour’ for students and staff. Everyone was encouraged to bring their classes to the library (or participate in their own classes) and read for pleasure for a full lesson. The library staff also organized competitions such as book in a jar, lucky door prizes and staff’s favourite book guessing competition. A huge thank you to all the students and staff who took part. With over 200 books checked out, it’s clear we have some keen readers in the school. A big congratulations to Ms Connor and Mr Sullivan who won the teachers lucky door prizes – ironically Mr Sullivan won the same book he was reading. Also, a massive thank you to Ms Hatfield-Smith who took her Year 12 Advanced English class to read to other students. Provided are a few quick facts that reinforce why reading is so important for our students: Reading reduces stress by 68%, relieving stress more quickly than listening to music, going for a walk or having a cup of tea Children who know adults who read for pleasure take it for granted that reading is valuable The more leisure books people read, the more literate they become and the more prosperous and equitable the society they inhabit Reading a gripping novel causes positive biological changes in the brain that can last for days Increasing literacy and numeracy skills has a positive and significant effect on gaining employment [smallgallery fooid="14255"]

Year 9 Camp
The Great Aussie Bush Camp kept our Year 9 students entertained and quite busy. The boys experienced an overnight bivouac which involved a hike to the site and a canoe trip on Myall Lakes back to camp. On site the students experienced the Giant Swing, Team Challenge, Leap of Faith and the Vertical Challenge. Participation on the part of the boys was excellent, they supported and encouraged each other and their behaviour was exemplary. They worked as a team, they challenged each other and themselves. They were well fed and the experience helped take many of the students out of their comfort zone. I would very much like to thank the staff who accompanied and supported me and your sons on camp. Their time and effort is greatly appreciated. Mr Speziale Year 9 Coordinator [smallgallery fooid="14313"]
