Grade 12 Byrne Creek student Sopithan Rajeswaran has created another terrific
video- this one is on behalf of the Burnaby Teacher Librarian Association.
This music video is dedicated to all the readers and those who are learning how to read through the Burnaby School District. It would not be possible without the work and support of teachers, support staff, administrators, trustees, parents and all the community members.
Earlier this week, author Jason Chabot spent the day at Byrne Creek sharing his experience as an accountant turned writer. His “big idea”: don’t get too stressed if you don’t know what you want to do with your life. Go ahead and try out many ideas and then follow what interests you most.
Chabot is the author of the Broken Sky Chronicles series and you can find all three books in this series here in the library.
The novel takes place during apartheid in South Africa on the cusp of the 1976 student-led Soweto Uprising. It follows four teenagers from very different backgrounds exploring issues of race and class.
Arushi grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa and spoke about how the events and climate influenced her writing, as well as how she developed her story.
