Library

The library supports the goals of the school and the curriculum by assisting students to become independent, lifelong learners and by collaborating with teachers in the development of appropriate teaching and learning strategies. It is open from 8.00 am Tuesday to Friday. It closes at 3.30 pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 4.30 pm on Tuesday and Thursday.  

The library is popular with students who enjoy its facilities. The library is a place where students access information in print and electronic format, undertake and complete class work, read, research and print as well as play chess.

The library facilities include seminar rooms with data projectors, a dedicated senior computer area, research and teaching areas and a reading area - all within a flexible, learning environment.
The library has a comprehensive collection of up-to-date print resources as well as online resources including databases.  The library intranet enables easy access to these online resources. The library uses the Oliver automated library system. This on-line catalogue is accessible from every school computer.

The library staff support students in reading, developing skills in information literacy and  technology  and promoting lifelong learning.
Reading is strongly encouraged as a worthwhile leisure activity and as part of the Australian Curriculum as students have access to the latest releases in fiction publications. The library reading program includes the promotion of Book Week activities, Readers' Cup and occasional author visits.
