2012 National Year of Reading is nearly here…

Our team of teacher librarians were fortunate last week to be able to attend the soft launch of the 2012 National Year of Reading, hosted by the Library team at Bialik College in East Hawthorn.   The promotion of reading is central to our role at Mentone Grammar as we meet fortnightly with each of our Year 7 to 10 English classes, meet with our Book Club students and seek to help students select reading materials suited to their needs and interests.  We look forward to planning a 2012 program that incorporates promoting the positive power of reading within our school and via participation in events on our community and beyond.   What an exciting year to look forward to.
