Library

Our school library building is situated near the covered play area. The library has much to offer in the way of Junior Fiction, Fiction and Non Fiction books that the students are allowed to borrow. Our loan period is for a week and students can borrow 2 books out at a time and is done during library lessons. We encourage the use of library bags to protect the books. We currently subscribe to the Australian Standing orders who supply six new titles 6 to 8 times a year for all age groups.

In Semester 2, 2017 we opted to have the Scholastic Bookclub brochures sent to our school. Each child receives one, the parents and students peruse them  and send back the order form by the due date to the office. Staff then place an order online by the closing date; and once completed it generally takes one week to arrive and then it is distributed. The school still receives rewards for the amount ordered in the form of vouchers and the teachers are able to access resources for the classroom and/or library. There are two issues per term and parents are under no obligation to buy from each of them.

There is colourful seating and tables and students are encouraged to use the library during lunch breaks for reading quietly and playing board games if they choose not to play outdoor games. As of 2017 we also have a bank of computers set up and students are encouraged to make use of them for their leisure time during lunch breaks.

The library is also utilised for P&C meetings every month; weekly staff meetings and professional development worshops.

In November 2015 the school started a "Transition Action Group" for the 3 to 5 year olds in our community, to allow them access to school routines. The group is run under guidance from the principal, for a period of 2 hours from 9 to 11 am on Tuesdays.

Parents are expected to stay with the children and help run / supervise activities. They bring along a healthy plate of food to share at 10am. Please contact the school if you wish to participate in these mornings, 47707313.
