We were delighted to welcome nationally acclaimed poet, Jacob Sam-La Rose, to Pipers Corner in September to officially open our brand new Library.
The Library, situated at the very heart of the school, provides a brand new and exciting learning space for the whole school community. Along with a range of fiction and non-fiction books, there are individual work stations, collaborative working areas and a dedicated classroom for more formal lessons.
At the opening Jacob gave a brief speech, including an insight into how he felt libraries were instrumental to him becoming the poet he is today. He spoke about the fond memories he has of going to libraries when he was younger, and how he feels that libraries are spaces where imagination can run free.
Following the opening Jacob spent the afternoon at Pipers, delivering workshops to girls in Year 9 and 10. This provided a unique opportunity for the girls to discuss not only Jacob’s work, but their own style of writing, enabling them to gain inspiration as to how they can write more effectively about the things that are important to them.Published: March 20 2017
