Book Club Reminder

A reminder to all members of Deele College Book Club.

While next Friday -April 11th- is the deadline for completion of the first book we would like to meet on Wednesday afternoon to review our texts. Therefore could all students (and teachers!) ensure they have read them by Wednesday. We discourage watching the movie version of the text instead of reading the book. Are you taking note Ms.Friel?
