Library

Hanging out in the libraryLibraries are of enormous support to children’s learning and discovery through information and technology. Libraries encourage a love of reading and enquiry, and the development of important life long learning skills. These skills are critical in the information age that we live in.

About our Library

Our collections support the curriculum, special character and the interests of students and staff. We have a selection of picture books, fiction, non-fiction and reference books as well as access to quality online resources to help the children with school projects and homework.

The redevelopment of the our school Library was a focus in 2013. We’ve created a fresh cosy environment, with new furniture, new books, and a Library webpage.  Watch this short video about the redevelopment. In 2015 we hope to continue updating our book collection and install new shelving – follow our progress through the Library blog posts.

Our Library is open at lunchtimes, for class sessions during the day, and after school. It has Wi-Fi access and as part of the ongoing redevelopment, will have computers available for children to use for research and checking out their own books.
