Fantastic news this week – the very popular author, Malorie Blackman, has been appointed as the new Children’s Laureate.
Students at The Dixie Grammar School love her books, especially the Noughts and Crosses series.
She has a new book out this week, Noble Conflict. It is on order for the Senior School Library – here is the book trailer:
Congratulations to Malorie!
We are selling off some of our old books from the Senior School Library to make way for new ones – see the poster below:
