Library

This year Mrs McGuinness has once again been seconded to another role within the Department of Education - facilitating the roll-out of a new library computer system 'Oliver'.

'Oliver' has replaced the old dos based system providing teachers and students with a web-based environment in which to research and access resources. She is being replaced by Mrs Engelen.

Learning in the library

The Library is the hub of our school, where our goal is to assist our students to reach their full potential. During our library sessions, equipping our students with information literacy skills is a priority, coupled with the promotion of an enjoyment of reading. 

Our library is equipped with 16 laptops, 10 desktop PC's, an Interactive whiteboard, video conferencing equipment and plenty of new fiction and non-fiction books.

During Library sessions we believe in giving our students rich and varied experiences helping them to develop a love of lifelong learning.

We maintain a strong focus on digital literacy and offer our students opportunities to extend their learning using ICT.

Check out the WebLinks page and the Teacher Librarian's teaching program pages on the left-hand side .
