The following reviews are by some of the Year 7 students. Why not read these books and see if you agree and maybe write a review too? You can find them and other great books in our libraries. More of your reviews will be coming soon ....

The Shout About School Libraries campaign highlights the vital importance of school libraries in ensuring that “every child has equal access to information, to knowledge, to critical thinking”. This is something that is very much recognized and supported by the leadership team at TRS, through the provision of libraries services delivered by professionally qualified librarians.
