Welcome Back!!!

And we're all back to school once again. As always, Summer flies like crazy. Some might take this badly, wanting the holidays, the sea, the sun and the sweet-doing-nothing never to end. But the fact that these three months passed so quickly means that you have been enjoying them... and deservedly so. After a whole scholastic year juggling between homework and study, a nice long break is a just reward. And this goes for the teachers as well!

Anyhow, the library is in a pretty barren state. There are hardly any posters up, something that will be remedied soon enough in the coming weeks. The walls and the shelves will soon display students' work done during the library sesions.

There is just one exception to the overall barrenness: the display. For this term, the chosen theme is VILLAINS. One can find numerous books in which the baddie is just as interesting and charming as the goodie. And just as important to the story. Can you imagine a world without Captain Hook or Magneto or Cruella de Vil?

The villains on display in the library are the Top Ten as voted by an online poll, to be mentioned (and acknowledged) in a later post. This is because there is an activity related to this display. A picture of each of the ten villains has been put up. However, none of them have been named; the students of San Anton have to try and identify the rogues themselves. The person who will manage to identify a villain, will get credit underneath the picture. Some of them are pretty easy to figure out, but a couple of them might prove a bit tricky.

One of the villains has already been unmasked. It is the White Witch from the Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. The person to identify it was Mattia.

Well done, Mattia!!
