Resource centre

Welcome

  

This multi-purpose wireless space enables all students an opportunity to come together and share information. It houses the:

  • Computer lab: This computer lab incorporates 28 new computers for whole class access. Teachers use the ceiling mounted data projector, screen and speakers to demonstrate new applications, effective internet use and ICT skills..

  • Library boardroom:  this room is ideal for case meetings and small group instruction.

  • Classroom reading storeroom:  this section of the library contains our school collection of readers for classroom reading instruction.  General borrowing is not permitted by students in this area.  This is a teacher only zone.  Teachers also have access to the teacher reference section.

Weekly use of the library provides all children with the opportunity to develop information skills and a love of literature. All classes have weekly timetabled borrowing times. Children can also borrow library books independently as often as they wish.

 

Library borrowing and use

The library is open daily for student borrowing from 8.15am-8.40am and then again at lunchtimes as follows:

Monday – Friday   
All year levels may borrow during lunch times from 10.45am to 11.15am and then from 1.25pm to 1.35pm.

It is requested that each child has a library bag when borrowing resources as this helps protect our valuable resources from wear and tear. Through the school network, teachers and students can access the resource centre catalogue from their classrooms at any time.


Borrowing policy

The loan period is 1 week however students are encouraged to return their books as soon as they have finished reading them and borrow again. They do not have to wait until their scheduled library lesson to do this.

Students may have borrowing rights restricted due to lost, damaged or consistently overdue books.   We also request that damaged or lost books are replaced by parents to keep our resource collection in good order.​​​​
