Library

Our library supports classroom programs, develops students information skills and promotes reading for information and enjoyment.

The library has a set of laptops connected to the schools computer network providing opportunities to integrate technology in teaching and learning programs.

Every class has a library lesson once a week and students are expected to borrow books during these lessons. We have a large collection of books and a display of new titles...plus over 2000 eBooks they can choose from.

Our exciting library system Oliver is live and accessible from home! Oliver is an exciting interface that helps students search our school library. Students can just go to their portal and click on the link to Oliver.

Please Note: the first time a student borrows an eBook they need to go into Wheelers platform to be authenticated or the system won't allow them to borrow a book.

Our library hosts a number of special events such as the Premier's Reading Challenge, Book Fair, visiting performances, Book Week activities and author visits.
