Library

Our Library is vibrant and engaging with five separate learning spaces, specifically designed for students to interact and engage with their learning in different ways. Each area is supported by the highest level of technology and full of resources and quiet break out areas. You can find the Library on the ground floor of B Block and is open before school (from 8:30am) and both breaks most days. 

Depending upon the subject and unit of work, at times students have some of thir classes in the library. There are five separate and individually designed learning spaces including our Virtual Reality learning space.

As a vibrant learning space, you can use all of the resources in the library including laptops and computers, as well as print and digital resources (books, magazines, board games, reference resources etc) for school assignments and your own personal interests and hobbies.

The library hosts regular activities including Chess Club, Book Club, FAST Centre (Free After School Tutoring) and student exhibitions. We also have competitions that support literacy such as the Book Week short story competition. We have student book reviews, hold craft activities for special events, and support students in literature, literacy, research and referencing.

Our library staff are here to help with all your information needs. We are also big supporters of the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge which we actively encourage our students to get involved with at high school.
