A great article!

Reading is a critical skill for school and life beyond it and it’s important that everyone plays their part in encouraging our young adults to read. This short article 10 ways to help the boys in your life read for enjoyment (not just for school) by literary academic Margaret Merga is a great read and provides some really practical advice to get your kids into reading.

Donation to Kiribati

In 2022 the College donated a collection of pre-loved fiction books to children in Kiribati, a small island at the centre of the Pacific Ocean. Tim and Anna Gill together with their three daughters Emily (Class of 2021), Yolanda and Natalia (current students) delivered these books on behalf of the College ‘to the many children who are hungry for new reading material’.
