Remember This...?

This is the true story.. of the famous Kaikoura Cows and their remarkable adventure!
On Monday 14th November 2016, at 2 minutes
after midnight, there was a big earthquake in the
South Island of New Zealand, not far from the town of Kaikoura.
These 3 brave cows quickly became famous,
as people all over the world shared an amazing
image of them stranded on an "island" of grass!
Great picture book by Jane Millton

NEW BOOKS... What does this mean???

NEW BOOKS T2 2017
What does this mean??? When you see a book with a "NEW BOOK" label on it like this
The "T2" stands for Term 2
This indicates when we purchased this book and when it was
added to our book collection in the library
This makes it easier for my librarians, and myself,
to put these books in the correct place in the library. For example... on the NEW BOOKS Stand!!
