Congratulations to all the winners!
There are two quarters left for the school year. Who will be the remaining reading awardees?
Get to know more about our Rookie reading Idols. They are our newbies who borrowed the most number of library books during the 1st quarter.
As a special activity for this year’s A-Day, the GS LRC organized a “BooXS to Go” event for the teachers and staff. The LRC staff surprised everyone by bringing a cart full of books to the different workrooms and offices of the school. This gave everyone a chance to borrow them without going to the library.
As an A-Day treat, everyone who participated also got to pick out a surprise gift for every book they borrowed.
Happy A-Day and Happy Reading to Everyone!
What’s the best/favorite book[s] you’ve read when you were a kid and why?
I remember having a lot of favorite books back then. But my most vivid memory is my collection of giant Disney Classics. I used to spend my free time getting amused with the stories of Cinderella, Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty and 101 Dalamatians. I am very proud to have experienced a childhood with limited technology because it introduced me to the wonderful world of literature. I hope parents these days would still do the same for their children.

My favorite books were the LadyBird Books. Most of their stories were about fairytales. I love reading fairy tales, they make me believe that dreams do come true.

Our Readers for the month of September are brothers, Lance (7F) and Carl (6B) Chingkoe. Being new to the Xavier community, as they are transferees from Saipan, did not stop them from visiting the library during recess and lunch to read their favorite books. There are times that you would see them sharing a single book like the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series, or reading two different volumes of a series separately like Harry Potter. Currently, Lance is reading the 4th book of Harry Potter (Goblet of Fire) while Carl is into the 7th book of Harry Potter (Harry Potter and the deathly hallows).
