Technology Resources

The library is equipped with 16 laptops, 10 desktop PC's, an Interactive whiteboard and video conferencing equipment.

Lunch Opening Times

The library is open second half lunchtime. During this time, students can dance to the tunes being played on the interactive white board by the Stage 3 Library Monitors, play chess, Battleships, Lego, build with blocks or train tracks, or sit (not so quietly) and read.  

Due to the increase lunchtime numbers we have had to assign days. Monday is open for Stage 1, Tuesday Stage 2, Wednesday Kindy, Thursday Stage 3 and Fridays is open for students to play chess. 

Library Monitors

Each year a group of Stage 3 students nominate themselves to be a Library Monitor. Once a week, students give up the second half of their lunch break to help out in the library. They assist by scanning and shelving returned books, help and play with younger students and play DJ so that students sing and dance. 

The Library Monitors are a great asset to the library and offer students a leadership role that is significant and rewarding.

Book Week

Each year in Term 3 we celebrate Book Week. Annually, the Children’s Book Council of Australia nominates Australian books and presents awards to books of literary merit for outstanding contribution to Australian children's literature.  During the term our focus will be on the shortlisted books, with each class participating in shared reading and discussion.

To celebrate Book Week, authors and/or illustrators are often organised to come and talk to students.
