Welcome to the Wakatipu High School library blog.

The 2024 theme for Samoa Language Week is 'Tautua i le alofa, manuia le lumana’i – Serve in love for a blessed future'. This year’s theme aims to clearly express the significance of service that is founded on love. Service begins in the family and continues in schools, villages, churches, in our communities and countries. Service is a practice that is not exclusive to certain people or ages, but rather, a process that begins at childhood and continues into adulthood.

It's New Zealand Music Month. We have local musicians playing in the school foyer on Wednesdays during Break 2 and quite a few books about New Zealand musicians on our library shelves!
We have had some magazines, called 'Homespun', donated to the library. A great source of ideas for everyone interested in textile crafts.

BREAKS IN THE LIBRARY You are welcome to be in the library at break times if you are reading, studying, working on a jigsaw puzzle or playing chess. When the weather is good, school policy says that you should be outside so unless you quietly occupied you can expect to be asked to leave.
