During the Christmas holidays, I went to Sydney and whilst there, went to the Harry Potter Exhibition. I will be running a 'Harry Potter' competition with a special prize that was purchased at the exhibition. Keep checking the Library Blog for more details - as you will be the first to find out!


After six amazing weeks off we are now all back at school and ready for a fantastic term 1.

We have many new books in the library this term. Come on in and reserve them now.

One of the popular ones will be 'The Art of the Adventures of TinTin. If you went to see the movie (as I did) you will find this book very interesting.

The artists at Weta Digital and Weta Workshop were thrilled to get the opportunity to work with Steven Spielberg to bring Herge's wonderful characters to the big screen in The Adventures of Tintin. They spent five years working on this movie. This book tells the story of how the film makers started with the original Herge artwork and books and ended up with what is seen on screen. It features early concept drawings, sequences, models, costume designs and final stills from the film. The book focuses on the creative process, showing the many designs that made it into the movie and others that didn't. A true insight into the creative thinking behind this ground-breaking feature film.

I have just finished my first book of the holidays. How about you - how many have you read?
