Our collection

We offer our students and staff vibrant fiction and non-fiction collections, which reflect the breadth of the school curriculum and diverse student interests. Our vast array of resources includes print format books, eBooks, audiobooks, academic journals, magazines and an extensive video library.

Facilities

The main library space offers a variety of seating options and is available for class bookings. Senior students and staff can also book a seminar room when they require a quiet space to work alone or in a small group.

Student support

Student learning is enhanced by our dedicated library team, which works collaboratively with teachers to embed research skills across the curriculum. Students receive training in using online resources; learning skills tailored to their classroom tasks. A Homework Club runs every Monday and Wednesday during term, giving junior students the valuable opportunity to receive learning support from our senior students.

Activities

Literacy activities throughout the year aim to spark our students’ interest in and love of literature. Annual celebrations include: Library and Information Week, Kids’ Lit Quiz, Sydney Writers Festival and Book Week. These events extend on what our students are learning in their classroom-based literacy activities.
