Recent News

This week several new books were added to the library stock. Some of which were requested by students. There is a box in the library for your book requests, so if there is something you would like to read that is not stocked, please put a note in the box and Mrs Hancock will do her best to get it.

Some of these new books are; the 2 new Patrick Ness books, 'The Ask and the Answer' winner of the Costa Children's book award and 'The Knife of Never Letting go' also a winner of the Guardian fiction prize. Other new books include, Bear Grylls 'Mission Survival' and also titles by Andy McNab and Darren Shan.

Accelerated Reader students have been busy reading and quizzing. The top of the word count list in Year 7 at the moment is Niamh Stephen with 79,095 words read. The Year 8 word chart topper is Nathan Armitage with 345,048 words, an amazing amount.

Our Kernow Youth Book Award group is up and running. We have had 2 meetings so far this term and the team is working its way through the chosen books for the award. If you are a Year 7 student and an avid reader, please come and see Mrs Hancock to take part in the group. Have a look at the wall display in the library which shows you our team from last year at the Award Ceremony at the Keay Theatre.

Don't forget the stationary shop is open at breaks in the library, so come and stock up on your pens, pencils etc.

Years 7, 8 & 9 Bag Pack Fundraiser at Asda - St Austell

On Saturday 27 September, thirty pupils from Years 7, 8 & 9 took part in an ASDA Charity Bag Pack. All pupils gave up their Saturday morning to support Poltair's local, national and international charities; Mount Edgcumbe Hospice Care (Cornwall Hospice Care), RSPCA, NSPCC and the British Red Cross.

I would like to give a huge 'thank you' to all pupils, who were fantastic ambassadors for Poltair, and the local community who took part in and supported the event. In total £694.95 was raised.
