There is currently a display in the Library for staff and students to view around the time of the celebration of Remembrance Day
History SA/Veteran SA’s exhibition Gallantry tells the moving stories of the brave actions of five South Australians awarded the Victoria Cross and George Cross in the Second World War and the Vietnam War.
The 5 double-sided pull-up banners tell the history of both awards, a background to South Australia and World War II and the Vietnam War and the stories of the five recipients: Peter Badcoe VC; Thomas Currie (Diver) Derrick VC; George Gosse GC; William (Bill) Kibby VC; and Lionel Matthews GC. The framed replica medals and citations of each man are also included in the display.
We celebrated International Games Day. It’s a date when libraries all over
the world agree to play games in a spirit of cooperation. The games can be anything: board games, card games, trivia games, tabletop games, social games, giant games. Games are good for the brain, and foster important life skills like socialization, theory of mind and systems literacy.
Our SRC representatives helped coordinate the games and supported students.
Elouise, Michael, Martin, TJ, and James have passed on their feedback about their experience:
Twister was very popular. Every game was in use. Everyone was getting involved – teachers got involved. There was a wide variety of games and people
made their own twist on the game to make it their own. The atmosphere was positive and vibrant.
We are learning how to ask questions and use research processes to meet and understand the challenges and opportunities ahead of us.
