Library

Welcome to 2021 in the Library

All classes will attend library once a week and students will be encouraged to seek out and read books based on their personal interests. Our library has a diverse range of quality books for students to read for pleasure as well as search for specific information to support their classroom learning. Students require a library bag for borrowing and books may be taken home for one week at a time.

Throughout the year, library lessons will focus on literature, informative texts and research skills to support and enhance class programs. Students will learn how to search and locate information and reading materials within our library as well as online using World Book Online and Literacy Pro (3-6).

Students can access World Book Online at home via the NSW Student Portal.

In an effort to reduce waste, most Stage 2 and Stage 3 written work will be completed on Google Classroom and students will be given access to this during library time.
