Probably for the first time in history, the Sixth Form Library had more girl than boy prefects in its board for 1976/1977.
Library prefects are required to carry out the normal library work such as afternoon duties, wrapping and shelving of books, maintenance of general cleanliness, cataloguing, stock-checking and also enforcing and maintaining discipline in the library. However, it is quite usual for library prefects to have to come back on weekends or during term holidays in order to do work like wrapping of new books and spring-cleaning.
Library Assistant, Mr. Tan SC left in February and was replaced by Ms. Jaya.
The major project of the year was the conmbined Sixth Form – General Libraries’ Jumble Sale held in May and the proceeds from the sale was used to purchase new books.
