Boys and Books

The Teacher Librarians work hard to acquire, and promote the reading of, good books. Statistics and research shows that more and more teenage boys are reading less and less. This concerns us! We run a Boys and Books program for year 7 and year 8 students in partnership with the English Department. In addition, we also host our own Reading Blog which provides reviews and recommendations of books we think your son (and daughters) will enjoy. Many Barker students follow the blog and do often add their own reviews and recommendations. This is encouraging!

We believe that the school library is vital to fostering a love of, and for, literature and literacy and invite you (Mum and Dad) to promote, model and encourage good reading habits at home. 

Thanks for your support!
