Derek the deer is all ready for Christmas. He has visited many rooms this year and has finished the term in Food Technology, after a week of strong literary focus, which means he will not go hungry over the festive season. DEAR time(drop everything and read) is so important at Launceston College and everyone in Years 7 and 8 are fortunate enough to enjoy 30 minutes of DEAR time each day. Derek hopes you will all continue to read every day in the Christmas holidays. It will improve your vocabulary and help in your English lessons!!
