Science Day out!

Over the past year, Mt Gravatt Library’s favourite school kids have been regularly visiting to read books and learn more about ‘big school’.

Each month, the school kids from Yarranlea Primary School take a short walk to Griffith Library for storytime and activities with the librarians.

But this month it was the primary school’s turn to host the librarians. Griffith received a special invitation to attend the school’s annual science day.

During the morning the kids became mini Einsteins enjoying a variety of different science activities and experiments. Not surprisingly, the homemade sherbet was the favourite!

Our librarians took along some acid (Coca-Cola), zinc and copper to make a homemade battery – after all you need power and light to see when you read books!

The Yarranlea Primary school shares the campus grounds with our Mt Gravatt Library and is only a short walk up the hill from the children’s classroom.

The the library has been opening its doors (and books) to the students since the community initiative began last year. The monthly visits incorporate engaging stories with fun and educational activities all run by Griffith’s Library staff.


Arrr it’s storytime at Mt Gravatt

Our Mt Gravatt library staff said ahoy! to the Yarranlea Primary School kids today with a pirate-themed storytime. The morning featured The man whose mother was a pirate by Margaret Mahy and some good ol’ fashion Vitamin C to ward off any chance of scurvy.

Celebrating a week’s worth of Harmony Days

Today is Harmony Day – 21st March – but we believe it’s so important, we made a whole week out of it!

 

The Libraries on each campus are taking part in the One Million Stars to End Violence Project – this means everyone has been busy folding stars out of ribbons.  This is a great way to relax and unwind during study breaks – check out the instructions, make a few and bring them into your Griffith Library.  You can also make the stars at each campus during the Harmony Week celebrations.

We are also including recipes this year – so get out your favourite recipes and bring them into your Griffith Library as well.  Choose a different recipe and make it for family and friends!

Last year, Naomi, a Student Partner, facilitated the drawing of a mural and encouraged students to contribute.

Originally from the Netherlands – but still finds herself on an adventure 9 years later! – Naomi studies Secondary Education and wants to teach in Far North Queensland.  Being involved in this project has made her feel part of the community and she wanted to share that with others.  Starting with her own drawing, Naomi would then encourage other students to draw the first thing that came to to their minds.  Assurance was made to all students that ‘art’ is subjective and even a simple symbol can express who they are and how they feel about harmony, making sure everyone is included at Griffith University and in Australia.

The decision to hang the mural up was not part of the original plan, but the response from people all over Griffith University was positive and it now is in the QCA library.  Naomi is honoured that we all think so much of the mural – a “stream of consciousness” if you will – and hopes that everyone got to feel the same sense of community that she did while working on it.
