Resource Centre

​The primary purpose of a school library is to support and enhance the learning and teaching which occurs in the classrooms. Students are encouraged to explore the library collection and to borrow books from​ a variety of text types and, in the fiction area especially, by different authors. Children are given strategies for identifying books which they can read themselves. 

Our school library / resource centre is regularly upgraded to meet the learning needs of the 21st century student. As w​ell as an excellent collection of Fiction and Non-fiction books the resource centre has a bank of computers connected to the school network. Students also have access to notebook computers and iPads in their classrooms. 

For your informa​​tion

Children have an ​opportunity to borrow books each week during their class Library session. For the Prep children the borrowing period is 1 week. For all other year levels it is 2 weeks. Children may change books after 1 week if they wish.

Children are encouraged to become independent, responsible users of the resources. They are expected to take care of the 'library' which is a personal and shared resource belonging to the whole school community. You can help your child by:

  • ensuring he/she has a library bag clearly named

  • being aware of your child's library/borrowing day

  • setting aside a place at home where library books are kept 

  • reminding your child to return books 

  • supervising your child's handling of library books (especially younger children)

  • encouraging your child to accept responsibility for lost or damaged books. A damaged book, brought to the attention of the Teacher-librarian quickly, can often be saved

  • joining the Council library service

  • reading to and with your child
