Book Groups


​​​​​​​Our Senior Book Group meets once a month to discuss a novel we have all read. We are fortunate to have so many avid readers at Birkenhead College that our group comprises of both students and staff.

We read a range of books throughout the year, and the selection is as varied as our members' opinions on them! Senior Book Group is a particularly good choice of activity for those senior students who put themselves forward for Scholarship English in Year 13.​​​​​​​


Second Tuesday of the month, 3.30 in the library​​​​​​​


The BC Book Group meets during lunchtime, once a month. We read a range of books, from classics to graphics. We also look at the annual NZ Children and Youth Book Awards and make our own decision on who we think should win, having tested out the shortlist beforehand. BC Book Group is designed to be a relaxed, social group with no expectations of students forcing themselves to read the montly selection if they don't enjoy it.​​​​​​​


Last Thursday of the month, lunchtime in the library​​​​​​​
