We are all horrified at the events that took place in Christchurch over the weekend. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the Muslim community within our school, around Dunedin and across NZ. For our LPHS students wanting to show their support and express their feelings there is a display in the library. We will be writing in cards and creating paper chain messages for our local Dunedin mosque.
Library Life
The library is a busy space at Logan Park and this year will be no exception! We have begun by introducing our new students to the library space and collections as well as holding several events. The library is looking vibrant with some new shelving and displays.
Our library prefects this year are Paige Matthews and Paida Gwavava.
We have a record numbers of student librarians this year (some of them pictured) with a healthy mix of junior and senior students.

Mental Health Week - Brent Harpur, Cartoonist

As part of the promotion of Mental Health Week (Oct. 8th - 14th) the library has developed a display and this week hosted Brent who gave a cartooning workshop at lunchtime.

There will be a collaborative art project taking place in the Meridian Mall which students are being invited to take in. 

Students thoroughly enjoyed having Brent in the library, they did some fantastic cartooning themselves and I even got my very own caricature!

International Day of Peace - 21st September

On the 21st September we remembered 'International Day of Peace'. Students came in and folded an origami dove as a symbol of our desire to see a world at peace.

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

We were treated to a sneak preview of the Kapa Haka's Polyfest performance in the library today.

They were fantastic!
