Term 3 Week 2


Welcome back to Term 3!


I would like to make a mention of the many students from varied age levels that have kindly extended their offer of help to the library, whether it be putting books away, tidying shelves or tidying furniture. These students have demonstrated great qualities and skills in wanting to help maintain our library space and ensuring it is tidy and welcoming for everyone who uses it. Thank you to these students for continuously offering their help. It makes a big difference when everyone respects our learning spaces.



Issue 5 of the Scholastic Book Club is now out! All orders can be made online through the LOOP Platform. Orders are due Wednesday 12th August, Week 4.




This year Book Week has been postponed until October, falling on Week 2, Term 4. Normal dates will resume next year.

This year's Book Week theme is Curious Creatures, Wild Minds.



Students can choose ANY FREE CHOICE books from their age range this year for the Premier's Reading Challenge. Please submit completed sheets to the library or class teachers.


A huge well done to those students who have already handed in their Premier's Reading Challenges! It is great to see such a keen passion for reading at Lockleys North. Remember, there is still plenty of time to finish your challenge. The due date is Friday September 4th, Week 7 of Term 3.





Increases to student loan limits will be continuing into term 3. Please note the following:

Receptions – Can borrow 4 books

Years 1, 2, 3, 4 - Can borrow 8 books

Years 5, 6, 7 – Can borrow 10 books 

Parents – Can borrow 10 books



Students can either place books they want to return in their classroom library box or directly into the green returns box in the library (please see photo). Please note that lost or damaged books will incur a $10 payment.



School policy states that $10 is the replacement cost for each book not returned. Your child will be unable to borrow until the book(s) are returned or the $10 payment is made to the Tirkandi library or Front Office via cash only. If the book is found the money will be refunded.
