School Library Facilities

The Library is open every day from 8.00am. On Monday and Friday the Librarian attends a staff metting at 8.20, so the library closes for a brief 10 minutes or so till she returns. Aside from that we're open for business all interval, second half of lunch, and every teaching period! A booking sheet operates for teachers to bring their classes in for research and choosing books. Most days the Library is FULL.

There is a suite of research computers on which the students can access encyclopedias and learning quizzes, as well as locate books for both assignment support and reading pleasure. We stock an extensive variety of books, keeping in mind the huge range of reading abilities catered for. During their relaxation time (before school, interval and lunchtime) students are free to use the library chess and chequers games, and the (new) Library stereo! Upstairs on the mezzanine floor is an area totally devoted to quiet reading and homework.




Students and staff are issued books with an ID card. Students can choose from over 13,000 books, two at a time. Books are issued for 21 days, and can be returned any time before then. A flock of student Librarians (20 in all) are rostered each day to cover shelving and book issues, offering a popular service to the school.

The Library is a good place to learn, read, socialise and relax: come visit us!
