“People aren’t one-dimensional; we are naturally inclined to have multiple skills and interests.” Bertrand Wong.
The Library was fortunate enough to host the annual House Debate competition with Benilde taking the final prize. It was a fast-paced battle of wit and sophisticated techniques which had the audience enthralled. It was wonderful to see robust support for all who participated.

Manga Club has started this term Mondays at lunchtime. The students discussed which were their favourite Manga series & made some recommendations to Mrs Stark about which Mangas to purchase for the library. Students have been writing mini reviews of different series which are now on the shelves next to the books for other students to see. Students enjoyed a drawing lesson from Mr Kirkles where they learnt how to draw eyes. It’s a lot harder than what it appears! Other upcoming activities include manga quizzes and manga Jenga. All students who are fans of Manga are welcome to come along with their lunch on Mondays.
Coaching has started for all students interested in playing chess on Tuesday lunchtimes in the library. Suitable for players of all abilities, the sessions begin with 10-15 minutes of coaching before students begin putting into practice what they have been taught by playing games against each other. Students are learning a lot and having fun. If you haven’t yet signed up, come along each Tuesday with your lunch to the library as soon as the bell goes!
