Members of our community will remember the launch of Ruyton’s Virtual Library last month, a joint collaboration between Ruyton and Mentone Girls’ Grammar School. I am delighted to announce that our School Librarian, Mrs Julie Purcell and Mr David Feighan, Mentone’s Information and Library Services Manager, have been named joint recipients of the School Library Association of Victoria’s Innovator’s Grant 2014. Julie and David initiated and established a shared eBook collection across the two schools that are not under the same governing body – a ground-breaking enterprise in Victorian Schools. This project is innovative as it leads the way in inter school co-operation to enhance the schools’ collections, as well as providing a consortia model that others can follow. It opens the way for shared literature-based teaching and learning opportunities. Congratulations to Julie and to David for this fantastic achievement.
