The Lawson students have been hard at work putting together extra bookshelves for Rivendell’s school library. The students worked together to build the bookshelves from their flat-pack base, a feat many people would steer well clear of! The staff were very impressed with how well the students worked together as a team, as well as their display of great communication, co-operation and problem solving skills.
Much to the delight of staff, Rivendell currently has many avid readers amongst the student body. To respond to the increase in the demand of new books, the library is constantly being updated with the most popular books on the market. Most recently, we have just added a wide variety of new science fiction and fantasy novels.
Some of the latest editions include the popular Neal Shusterman series as well as the Jeff Povey series. Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh and I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai (winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize) are also some recent editions to Rivendell’s collection. We have also just ordered a new batch of graphic novels, which have proven to be very popular amongst the students.
Keep up the great reading Lawson!
