An integral part of our library program is the collaborative teaching role of our teacher librarians. They support teachers and students in their units of inquiry and promote & teach the skills of lifelong reading and information literacy.

Our Mission is:
To enable students to become lifelong learners and readers, as well as both effective and ethical information users. The library is focussed on student learning outcomes. To achieve this mission, library staff will work in partnership with the leadership team and teachers to:
- foster the value of reading for pleasure and the appreciation and enjoyment of literature.
- develop students’ information literacy skills through guided inquiry, using both the International Baccalaureate and Australian Curriculum.
- provide access to current, high quality information resources and literature in a variety of formats, that supports both IB and the Australian curriculum, school priorities, student needs, abilities and interests.
- provide accessible services to assist both students and teachers in easily and independently accessing resources and information.
Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 3:25pm (excluding Friday lunch), closed for recess (11:05-11:25am)
Borrowing Limits & Returns:
R-1: Reception children initially borrow one book. This is increased at the teachers’ discretion. Year 1 can borrow 2 books.
Years 2-4: 4 books for 2 weeks
Years 5-7: 5 books for 2 weeks
If a student has 1 overdue book, he/she may only have one other book on loan. However, if a student has more than 1 overdue book, he/she may not borrow until some books have been returned.
Students are encouraged to return books in a timely manner. Please see library staff for additional information.
We welcome parent/grandparent help. If you have any available time during the week and are interested, please come see us in the library. We are appreciative of any support in this way and have a variety of tasks that are suitable for volunteers. No experience is necessary.
Book week is held in Term 3 of each year. It’s a time to celebrate reading, authors, literature and writing.
