Today we received the fabulous news that our school Library has been included in the Australia's Great School Libraries Honours List.
Last year in October the FAIR (Freedom of Access to Information and Resources) group collaborated with library associations and EducationHQ to request nominations of Great School Libraries across Australia.
FAIR was looking for libraries that help people "find reliable information; use the information effectively; think critically; make informed decisions; work productively with others; build knowledge and understanding of the world; safely navigate the internet; communicate and share their ideas; and find great reads to meet personal interests and abilities" (ALIA,2016).
Our school is celebrating these important days by weaving stars to contribute to the International One Million Stars to End Violence community project. These stars are symbols of light, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence, including violence against women, bullying and racism.
Our goal is for each student to weave a star. These stars will be sent to Queensland for inclusion in the installation at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018 in Queensland, in partnership with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) arts and cultural program.
The video below gives simple instruction for weaving these stars.
We are learning how to ask questions and use research processes to meet and understand the challenges and opportunities ahead of us.
