You’ve Been Caught! #1

Fear not! You’ve been caught reading and that is great!

Caught readers, please go to the library and identify yourselves to our librarian to receive a token.

What is “You’ve Been Caught!”?

“You’ve Been Caught!” is a new initiative by Library@Beacon where we take photos of unsuspecting students who read to pass the time.

So why are we doing this?

We want to promote the love of reading. Reading has many benefits and it is to the mind what exercise is to the body. Don’t believe me? Check out the articles here:

8 Science-Backed Reasons to Read a (Real) Book
10 Benefits of Reading: Why You Should Read Every Day

What should you do if “You’ve Been Caught!”?

If you are the one caught in the photo, do proceed to the library to identify yourself to the librarian to receive a token.

Promote the love of reading by showing your friends that it is fun to read! Happy reading!

March: Readers’ Pick

In the last week of Term 1, Primary 1 and 2 students were in for a treat as the teacher that they voted for within their level to read an excerpt from a book to them during recess.


The Primary 1s voted for Mrs Goh Lee Ching, and here is our dear teacher/princess, and she definitely did not disappoint her adoring fans.

The Primary 2s voted for Mr Alex Ong, who was a wizard. Not quite like Professor Albus Dumbledore or Professor Severus Snape, but teacher, Mr Alex, you did just as great!

Stay tuned for more Readers’ Pick in the future! Remember, you vote for the one you want to listen to.
