The library is a vibrant, collaborative, agile learning and community space. It provides a welcoming environment to support reading for information and pleasure, research for the units of inquiry for the Primary Years Programme as well as providing support for Lunchtime clubs, community meetings, Indigenous Culture Club and extracurricular activities. We thank the P&C in partnership with the school and Education Directorate for their support in redeveloping the library spaces for 21st century with indoor and outdoor teaching and learning areas.
The library is open for students at lunchtimes Monday – Friday for quiet reading, drawing, card and board games and for lunch time clubs such as Reading Eggs and Mathletics or Computer Coding and Origami Club.
