Library:


The library is a source of information, wisdom and inspiration. We encourage students of all ages to take full advantage of it to help them develop life-long skills to set their foundation in this Information Age. The School has a modern library which holds a central position. Its comprehensive collection of resources is available for use by all members of the school for study, personal, recreation and relaxation purposes.


As a part of the future developmental plan of the school, the library will have access to a network of wireless laptops which will be used for public access searches, word-processing, graphics and information gathering.


The Information Skills Programme

The library will have a documented Information Skills Programme designed to teach students how to access, use and communicate information. It is aimed at developing confident, independent learners for life.


Opening Times

The Library is open between 10:00am to 3:30pm Monday-Friday on school working days.


Each class has a weekly borrowing session. Staff and students can also borrow at first break or in the 30 minutes before and after the school day. During second break students may read, research and draw in the library.


There is a teacher librarian to assist in locating information and to borrow resources.


How many items can you borrow and for how long?

Books may be borrowed for one week and they can be returned or changed earlier if so desired. All books must be returned before the summer vacation.


Students of Reception may borrow one book at a time, Years 1 to 6 may borrow one fiction and one non-fiction book and teachers may borrow 15 books.


What happens if a book is late, lost or damaged?

A reminder sticker is put in the student diary, an overdue note is sent home or a letter asking for payment is sent home. If a book is damaged, please return it to school so we can try to repair it. If it is beyond repair, an account may be sent home.


Students are taught how to care for books and have to follow a clear guideline on the ‘do’s and don’ts’ in the Library.
