The library has been collaborating with the Science Department to come up with some initiatives that will inspire the students to think about their role in a more sustainable future for our planet.

The focus for us is on providing experiences and prompts for the boys that don’t require them to actually produce anything…except ideas and thoughts. Why?…because Science Week coincides with exams for our senior students. So, with these parameters in mind, we’ve put together this schedule of activities in the library during the upcoming week:

 

Upcycling Exhibition: All week

Includes examples of items that, rather than being discarded, have been used in new and interesting ways

War on Waste Series: Monday, Wednesday and Friday

Screening of all three episodes of the popular ABC series will be taking place at lunch times in the Group Study Space

Special Guest Speakers: Tuesday and Thursday

Craig Reucassel, host of the War on Waste series will be presenting to Year 9 boys during Period 5 & 6 on Tuesday

Luke Barnes, Astronomer with Sydney University, will be presenting to Year 9 boys during Period 5 & 6 on Thursday.
