The Thistle - An E-Newsletter of Scotch College, Perth, Western Australia

Junior School Resource Centre

The year has started at a fast pace in the Library. This year the Library goes to the Early Learning Centre once a week so that our littlest members of the Scotch community get to share stories and borrow books to take home to share with their families.

The Year 1 boys are enjoying coming to the library each fortnight to borrow a fiction and non-fiction book whist the Year 2 and 3 classes are immersed in inquiry and using books to answer the burning questions they pose in the classroom.

The Year 4 and 5 boys have just started a new take-home reading program that will commence this week. Their take-home reading book will now be a book they have selected from the Library based on the reading and comprehension level the STAR test quiz has allocated. Once a book has been read the students will complete a short comprehension quiz. More information to parents in these year levels will be sent out in the coming weeks.

Parents are welcome to visit and borrow from the Library at any time. If you ever have any questions about this service at Scotch please email me at
