Welcome to our Library
Located in the new Kirinari building, the library is a welcoming, vibrant place of learning, promoting reading, collaboration and lifelong learning.
A wide range of print and online resources encourage students’ recreational reading and support students’ learning across the curriculum.
Created a 'Detective Theme' as a fun way to support learning as students develop skills to search for clues and locate evidence to verify their findings in all subject areas.
Plan and teach co-operatively with teachers. Lessons are embedded within class units of work, and are offered through Information Literacy and Inquiry Learning. This makes available great opportunities for differentiation.
Provides quality reading experiences that enrich growth and promote a love of reading through lessons, displays and promotions such as 'Readers of the Week', 'Lucky Book Borrowed' and 'Guess the Title or Subject Competition'.
Assists students either individually, as a group and whole class.
