A place where it's not easy to raise a family, especially one with its fair share of problems. But thirteen-year-old Kate takes on the responsibility and tries to keep her embattled family going. And it's Kate, in the end, who thinks she can get her parents, her brothers and sisters through heartbreak and tragedy.

Library Facilities and Services

The Library Learning Commons has undergone significant change over the past few years. Renovations have opened up additional spaces. From our library Oasis where students can eat their lunch or snacks, to a number of enclosed co-learning centres where students can work collaboratively with the aid of a white board or smart TV, to a maker space with ergonomic tables and supplies for completing hands-on projects - the LLC is a place where students can access the resources they need and use them in a comfortable, inviting environment to support their learning. If you’re at the school, stop by to see our showstopping circulation desk made from upcycled books by our own students!
