Resource centre

 

​Our resource centre has a wide selection of books and magazines to support the curriculum and to provide for the recreational and leisure needs of students and staff. We have an extensive collection of fiction books to support literacy and general reading programs.

Our resource centre database, Oliver, used to locate these resources, is accessible from any computer in the school by following the link on the intranet. Our staff is available to help you find the information you require.

Our resource centre has three teaching areas so that classes can readily access library resources during class time plus a computer space with 18 computers for class use so that electronic and print resources can be used together. We also have a computer pod of 7 computers. These are also accessible to students at lunch time to complete set work.

Opening Hours

The resource centre is open from 8.00am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday. Some afternoons a staff member may stay at school longer. If so, the library will remain open.

The resource centre is automatically closed when the Teacher Librarian is unable to supervise eg attending staff meetings.
