The new group is the latest initiative of the English staff and is led by Mrs Titheradge. Mrs Titheradge said she was pleased with the turn out and was looking forward to the group continuing and thriving over the coming weeks. The first boys were welcomed to the group with a commemorative ‘Breakfast with Books’ bookmark and a comfortable space filled with café seating and soft bean-bags to relax and read. The group was developed to meet the need within the College of those students who have a love for literature, reading and, of course, breakfast! On the menu each Wednesday will be Nutella Overnight Oats (which were the crowd favourite on Wednesday), Ham and Cheese Toasties, Cheese and Bacon Rolls, Breakfast Muffins, Banana Bread, Weet-bix with Honey, Fruit and tea or hot chocolate.
The English department at the College are leading a number of new initiatives this year and into 2023 to create a space where those talented and interested English students can be recognised and valued for the amazing work they do in the classroom. Many students at the College read regularly, but many just don’t have the space or time to do so at home. This club is for anyone and everyone to come along and try! Reading improves brain connectivity, empowers you to empathize with other people, reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and heart rate as well as fighting depression symptoms. What better way to start your day and get some positive impacts!
To gain entry to the group each Wednesday, students and staff need to simply BYO book, a mug and a $2 donation. We look forward to seeing lots of new faces over the coming weeks!
