Resource Centre

The Resource Centre is the centre of learning at the Hub, and library staff provides a friendly welcoming environment for all school community users.

The Library Collection

Our well stocked library provides a wide variety of materials both fiction and non-fiction, including the most recent publications. These books are available to students, teachers and the parent community.

Open borrowing times
8:30 – 9:30 am
1:50 – 2:20 pm
3:20 – 3:30 pm Mon, Wed - Fri

Younger students spend time with the class teacher listening to stories and discussing literature, and borrow their own materials during this time. Older students borrow their own reading material independently and access the open borrowing times available. Parents are also welcome to browse and borrow with younger children.

The Premier’s Reading Challenge is offered to all our students from Reception to Year 7. Students are encouraged to be involved in the awards program, which challenges young people to read 12 books at their level before September. More information is available at www.prc.sa.edu.au

Resources

To support learning programmes across the curriculum throughout the school, the Resource Centre manages the many resources required by our teachers’ to do quality work. Our Teacher Reference room houses a large range of materials, texts, kits, pictures, charts, and multimedia materials.

In addition students are able to access on-line information from the computer pods in the research area of the library.

Programs

To enhance the classroom programme, the teacher-librarian and classroom teacher plan and work collaboratively to provide appropriate learning opportunities.

Students are immersed in literature to encourage and promote reading and writing of many genres.

Information literacy is approached through Resource Based Learning and Student Initiated Learning. These methodologies support students in developing skills to access information from a range of sources. This promotes and supports independent research through the effective use of resources. The process begins in Reception as students show interest in ‘finding out’ and develops throughout their schooling, to become a life-long learning skill.
