Okay everyone, this shows why you should be reading this blog. To all those people who use the library's lovely computers, the storm watch means that the library's computers are going to be down again..... This means NO Internet access WHATSOEVER.

Please inform your friends about this so that eventually the whole school will know, and there will be less disappointed people walking OUT of the library because there is no Internet access. Also, tell them that this is one of the main reasons why you should be following our blog..... No BlackBerry can tell you that the storm is going to affect St.Joseph's Convent's Internet!

Note: This is provided that the floor upstairs hasn't been renovated. Let's hope that this was done in time. (WizardCaptain)

Divali !

To all students of St.Joseph's Convent, as always, we await the day when the Divali presentation is made after lunch in our courtyard. Not only is it exciting, but we miss one, maybe two periods in the afternoon!!!!

On the schedule is the usual: an exciting dance, our form 6's modelling their finest Hindu wear (including the boys!) and much, much more. Just remember: even though you're not Hindu, Divali is a festival that everyone can celebrate.

So, just remember that school still ends at 2:30, so no leaving during the Divali presentation please! And prepare for some serious entertainment!!!!

Sports Day

OMG! It's finally here! The day we've all been waiting for, especially, our captains who are killing themselves with work. We all know it's on a Friday, best day ever since we don't have to go to school and do work.

Sports Day really starts off with the inspection of the houses, a little news flash, if you don't clean your shoes, your captains are going to literally rip your head off: Why? Because your house will lose points. We would usually continue with the march pass (you know the thing, where they do the mark time , eyes front and all those things). Then, this is everyone favorite entertainment on Sports Day because that's when the cheerleaders do their individual dance routine and then All the cheerleaders dance to a killer mix of rocking songs we love.

The houses would then proceed to take part in friendly competition or so they want us to believe, what can i say we are competitive people. Most people, tend to enjoy the tug-o-war and the teachers competitions, which I am not certain what they are this term. There are competitions among year groups and of course you will get a prize if you win, theirs also the boys' races, this attracts many people, just saying! A next favorite is the dance off, done by the form 3's, rel bess!

The people who love their food, there is a luncheon by the St.Vincent The Paul's club, and yes you have order and pay before hand, there is also The Tuck Shop on the compound , with drinks, snacks and other eats.

See you people on the day of the best Sports Day in the whole of Trinidad, don't forget to walk with your House Spirit!

New Books Coming Soon

So you guys know about that shelf behind the desk with all the new books, right? All the titles you've been wanting for a while? Here's a preview of what's instore for you.

Ironside by Holly Black

in the realm of faerie...
...the time has come for Roiben's coronation. Uneasy in the midst of the malevolent Unseelie Court, pixie Kaye is sure of only one thing her love for Roiben. But when Kaye drunkenly declares herself to Roiben, he sends her on a seemingly impossible quest to find a faerie who can tell a lie.
Miserable and convinced she belongs nowhere, Kaye decides to tell her mother the truth that she is a changeling left in place of the human daughter stolen long ago. Her mother's shock and horror sends Kaye back to the world of Faerie to find her human counterpart and return her to Ironside. But when Kaye returns to the faerie courts, a battle of wits and weapons is being waged over Roiben's throne, and she soon finds herself at the center of it all.

(Barnes and Noble)

Expect more updates as time goes by and I drool over look at that shelf again. Peace out.

Yup…you saw right…the topic is School Libraries. So your most probably asking how’s she going to make this interesting…right?

I personally sit here wondering too, so I’ll start off with a definition…definitions always help…

A school library is a library in your school that equips you with resources such as books, the internet, encyclopedias, films, recorded sounds and digital media to help you better apply yourself to your school work.

Secondly I will say that Library Prefects are not nerds! We’re just too cool for words! You must praise us as we will one day take over the world…

On a more serious note let us talk about the history of school libraries The later part of the 19th century marked the beginning of the modern American library movement with the creation of the American Library Association (ALA) in 1876 by a group of librarians led by Melvil Dewey.

I’m going to end off by saying use your library efficiently if your have one because it means you’re lucky enough to have one.
