VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!         

Our book fair is only successful because of wonderful volunteers.  We will need help setting up and packing up, before and after school, during 1st and 2nd breaks and during the Twilight Event.  First break, Junior School students will be allowed access; second break will be for Middle School students.         

Here is the roster that you can view (make sure you have your school email account open) to see when help is needed and which spots are vacant. This is a live document so Jane will be continually updating it and all changes will be available to view by clicking on the link. New helpers are very welcome and the old hands always look after you!  

If you can help, please email Mrs Peachey at library@redlands.qld.edu.au or call the Library on 3286 0213 with these details: your name, phone number, your best email address, time/s you are available, your child's name and class. We will enter your name into the time on the roster but keep your other details private.

Co-Curricular Chess every Thursday afternoon in the Library

Redlands College is offering students from Grades 3 – 12 the opportunity to enjoy
the exciting game of chess as a co-curricular activity
. Playing chess can strengthen
problem solving skills; enhance memory and concentration; teach logical, critical and
sequential thinking; and demonstrate the importance of decision-making and
consequences. This will be run by a coach from Gardiner Chess and the students will
learn tactics and strategies as well as playing games. There may also be the
opportunity to represent the College at inter-school competitions throughout the year.
This activity will take place after school from 3.15 pm - 4.15 pm on Thursday afternoons in the Library.  Junior School Students will need to be collected by their parents from the library.
