On 17. March 2017 some students of our school took part in a book presentation in the local library. The presentation was made by the author of the book: ABS book of health. Ján Zbojek, the author of the book, introduced the students his idea of the health system which reveals different causes of illnesses and his simple view of the heart of health. The foundations of his book are the pillars of health, he would like to enhance young people to keep these pillars and thus they can improve their own health condition. The author focused on students and recommended them to read this book. The interview was breathtaking and the author´s presentation was appealing. He was talking not only about the content of the book but he included information about the structure of the book and the language also.

On 7th March 2017, our students, grouped in three different teams, were involved in a challenging and exciting game based on their knowledge about books and authors . The games were loosely based on the Italian TV programme " Per un pugno di libri". After reading Brothers Grimm's fairy tales, they had to answer quiz questions focused on events and characters in these works. They showed great enthusiasm and keen interest in the game which they found enjoyable and entertaining: they really read for fun!
Watch the video here!
Some of the games were:
1)From book to character..... from character to book
Students listen to 10 short passages regarding descriptions about the main characters of well-known novels. Students guess the character to whom the passage refers to and the book in which the character appears
2) From book to author
Some titles of famous novels are read out and students have to find out who the author is
3) Within the tale
Students answer 10 questions on Brothers Grimm's fairy tales
4) Who are the authors?
Students have to answer a few questions about the authors
5)Once upon the time...... the fairy tale
True/false questions about the fairy tale as a literary genre
On this occasion we also kicked off our Permanent Book Market Stall- students brought some spare books of their own to be exchanged throughout the school year.
Our students from Liceo " Seguenza" , as well as other pupils from lots of local schools, have taken part in a project organised by the Regional Library: each school was assigned a Sicilian city to work on: our students will develop a project about Catania. Since the beginning of the school year, they have been attending several seminars and conferences, held by University professors and journalists, about different topics: art, enogastronomy, the social media. On 15th March 2017, they went to the library to do some research about books dealing with the above-mentioned topic in order to jot down a tourist itinerary on Catania's hidden tresaures. This itinerary, along with the others devised by other schools, will be published on a blog coordinated by the Library
