Library Books due back Friday 26th May

Keep Reading All Summer Long with E-Books!

All books are due back in the library on May 26th but there are plenty of opportunities to read this summer! If you haven’t been to the Central Library near Victoria Park it’s FANTASTIC! I highly recommend getting a library card and being a regular visitor this summer. There are also book stores around Hong Kong, with the new addition of Eslite in Causeway Bay. If you haven’t been there, give it a visit. It’s an awesome book store!

And there’s always ebooks! Popular fiction ebooks can be found on OverDrive, fantastic picture books are at TumbleBooks, nonfiction titles are on Destiny Discovery and Big Universe has both fiction and nonfiction titles. Many of the nonfiction titles on Destiny Discover are interactive with videos, links, GoogleMaps, quizzes, etc. Very fun! All our e-books are available all day, everyday and they’re FREE!

Dear Students, Teachers and Parents,
Would you like to help human trafficking illegal in Hong Kong? During Exhibition My team and I have been working on this issue and we would like help to raise awareness for this. We interviewed a lawyer, Patricia Ho which is working to help human trafficking Victims. She has made a Petition for people to sign in order to make this issue illegal in Hong Kong, it is called ‘Hong Kong Government to make human trafficking illegal. Please take a minute to help make human trafficking illegal!

Last Book Club for the Year

All students have their books and are in groups to share each Monday. The presentation gives you an idea of the sorts of things we will be discussing.

This week we are taking notes about the ideas of the book and how the author describes interesting details by ‘showing’ us rather than just telling us.
