The Library House Competition is ON again. Last year, as published in the College magazine page 11, Barker won 4 points, Pisa 3, Roy 2 and Iron 1.
– The number of books issued by each student add points to his or her House;
– The number of overdue days remove points;
– Books that are returned on the day of the issue are not included. Do not try to borrow a book and drop it off immediately. It does not count!
This competition has been organised:
– to encourage you to borrow more books (and to actually issue them, otherwise it is not counted)
– to encourage you to return your books on time
– to promote a whanau culture of managing books
– to add a cultural aspect to the house competition which is otherwise pretty much sportive.
First term results
– Barker is ahead already this year, with more books issued and less overdue penalties.
– Iron MUST borrow more books.
– Pisa borrows enough books but MUST improve its returns habits.
– Roy can improve both.
Next week, I will distribute overdue listings to whanau teachers. Make a point to return those books promptly, collectively. Thus you save penalties to your house AND you avoid the 50 cts invoicing fee.
