Library

Our school library was built through the Federal Government's 'Building the Education
Revolution' initiative. The new building is an extension of the original that was used when the school first took enrolments in 1999.  It was extended to more than twice the original size in 2011.

Library Facilities

This multi-purpose space allows for various classes to share the facility at any one time.  

Main Floor: this space houses student collections of Picture Books, Fiction, Information books and the Accelerated Reader collection. We have 12 OPACS available for students to search for books. There are often two classes borrowing at the same time from these areas.

  • The Seminar Room incorporates 20 computers for class access. Teachers are able to use the ceiling mounted data projector, screen and speakers to demonstrate new applications, effective internet use and ICT skills, and in Research activities. Students use the computers in this room to complete their      Accelerated Reader tests, and to practice their ICT skills.

  • The Seminar Room is used by the Teacher- Librarian in lessons linked to the C2C programme with different year levels.  

  • The Seminar Room, which has access to wireless connection, is also used regularly for teacher meetings, and for Professional Development activities. It is also an ideal space for small group instruction. 

  • Another Class area provides access to an interactive SmartBoard for whole class lessons.  

  • The Teacher Workroom houses the Home Readers and Instructional Texts, and a Circulation computer for staff, as well as the photocopier.  

  • Teachers also have access to the Teacher Reference section.
