Term 2 Week 9

The recent death of highly regarded bookseller John McIntyre of the Wellington Children’s Bookshop has prompted a flurry of warm and nostalgic online posts and articles. John’s passion for children’s literature, his commitment to reading and his understanding of its importance to young people have helped shaped generations of Wellington readers. He will be sadly missed in the Wellington book scene. The accolades for John are a reminder that there are times when nothing beats curling up with a good book. And with the holidays looming and the inevitable cold wintry weather, it’s a great time for our girls to relax and bury themselves in a great read. 
We are lucky at Marsden to have a well-stocked library full of contemporary and classic books, specifically chosen for girls and young women. Karen Richards, our librarian has a fantastic eye for the latest fiction and ensures that they are promptly on our shelves. For those who prefer e-reading, there is also a great selection. If the girls are a bit stuck when it comes to choosing, Karen and the English staff are happy to help.  Sadly, we note that the older girls, who were once passionate readers, tend to drift away from the habit. Making the transition from teen reads to adult fiction can be tricky – at the same time, the girls’ lives become very busy.
We have recently introduced a sustained silent reading time for our Year 7 to 10 students, which along with their regular library lessons, is a reminder of how valuable, enjoyable and relaxing reading can be. The holidays are a great time to get back into the habit – if it’s been lost. We would love to encourage the girls to put down that phone and pick up a book!

Ka kite ano,

Margaret Adeane
Acting Principal
