The library has been a hive of activity with boys studying, playing chess, using the computers and of course reading this half term. The lure of reading a good book in the warm holds even more appeal when it is cold outside.

Thanks to the support of Head of Year 7 Mr Roy and form tutors students have once again taken part in our now annual 'Act of Kindness' from the library. Year 7 boys were invited to create cards with personal messages written inside which are delivered to the elderly residents of local care homes in Watford. Many of the recipients do not have relatives around or nearby at Christmas and each year the Home Managers feedback how much joy these cards bring. This year's cards were beautiful with obvious care taken to design cards and very kind and thoughtful messages. A small group of boys will join me as we go along to the care homes to deliver the cards in person. 

You can see all of the cards below on the page gallery. 

As we enter the new year I would like to encourage boys to come along to the library and borrow a book.  Our Duke of Edinburgh library volunteers present themed displays which are regularly updated to inspire reading of different genres.  I would also remind boys they are welcome to come and ask me for any advice and ideas for good reads. 

Any parents and carers looking for last minute stocking fillers or planning to make a visit to their local library over the Christmas holidays might like to visit The Book Trust website, which has a useful book finder tool. The Book Trust.
