Library

Welcome to the Library 

Our library has been changing. With the help of the P&C we purchased flexible furniture which makes it possible for teachers to modify the learning environment and allows students to create their own learning spaces for greater collaboration and communication with other students. We have different areas in the library, facilitating collaborative learning and quiet personal reading.

Our orange Happy Stools are very popular with students. Their rounded base allows movement and for many students this rocking motion promotes concentration. The many comfortable ottomans and seats are also very popular.

Borrowing

We love students to borrow books from our school library. Books should be kept in a safe place at home and carried to and from school in a library bag. Help your child to accept responsibility for remembering to return books on the right day.

Tuesday - Year 3-6 library day Thursday - K-2 library day Access to our library catalogue

If you or your child want to view the library catalogue at home, you can log on to the DEC Portal at http://student.det.nsw.edu.au. Your child can then log in with their DEC username and internet password and by selecting ‘School library' can then access our catalogue. The Premier's Reading Challenge can also be accessed in this way after March 4th.

Parents, carers and community members in the library

We invite parents, carers and community members to participate in our library committee which oversees the direction our library is taking. Your thoughts and ideas are always welcome.

Parents, carers and community members are welcome to come to the library and browse in the collection. There is also the opportunity to help  with  borrowing books  for students, shelving and covering books. We look forward to seeing you sometime soon in the library.
