The weather is warming up, the days are getting longer and we can hardly believe another school year has sailed by.

Syba HQ has been abuzz with product development; we have In response to your feedback and the global library trend towards arranging the fiction collection by genre, we have developed a new range of senior focused genre products; this includes spine labels, posters and more! Check out the full range and let us know what you think, we hope you and your students love these new designs as much as we do!

It’s maker time! As the makerspace movement continues to grow in popularity we have expanded our range to ensure your makerspace looks as engaging and fun as all the creative activity that goes on there.

We have updated our copyright signs and they are looking better than ever! We have also added a dynamic pair of posters outlining copyright requirements and frequently used symbols including Creative Commons and your responsibilities when using content created by others. This is an essential set to foster ethical scholarship and to support Digital Citizenship policies and programs. The reusable wall graphic is a personal favourite!

Our creative team has come up with a beautiful new range of perspex starter packs including non-fiction, locations and genre. Don’t forget, all our perspex signs are made to order and are fully customisable so you can get creative too! Maybe you’d like a set for your new senior genres? The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. We have a whole range of mounting solutions so contact us for a quote!

Remember, many of our standard products can be completely customised or we are always excited to work with you to find unique solutions for your specific need. If you have a product idea that would make your job easier get in touch and if we add it to our range you get yours for free! We are just a phone call or email away.

In an effort to make our professional learning more accessible we are running a series of Digital Citizenship Online Extension Courses. These courses are BOSTES / QTC accredited at proficient teacher level and facilitated by head of professional learning Lyn Hay. Most children now have digital footprint before they are even born so ensuring that students and teachers are aware of their rights and responsibilities online is more important than ever!
