Well done boys!

The weekly Rua Readers’ Club has been attracting new members with the most recent conversation around the novels that have been made into movies such as Louis Lowry’s The Giver and James Dashner’s The Maze Runner.

A true highlight that the Rua Resource Centre has once again experienced during 2014 is witnessing our students’ sense of community and generosity in helping to raise funds for charities such as Project Compassion and the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

Watch this space as 2015 will be an exciting year with new developments including an ‘App’ for students to access library resources 24/7 and the added dimension of borrowing eBooks, giving students a further choice of format when making their reading choices.

The Rua Resource Centre would like to wish all students, their families and friends a joyous Christmas and holiday season and every good wish for 2015.
