Internationally renowned performance poet Joel McKerrow was a special guest in the library on Wednesday, 22 August entertaining a lunch time audience of students and staff with a performance of his self penned poetry. In addition, two small groups of Year 7 students were treated to a performance poetry and writing workshop.

House spirit was alive and well at the annual House Book Week Library Trivia Challenge. Each House battled it out to answer twenty book related questions. The winning house was awarded the inaugural perpetual shield. Congratulations to all students and the daily winners of the Book Week Trivia question on Siena Central who each received a $30 Readings Gift Voucher.
