Resource Centre

“Good children’s literature appeals not only to the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child”

Our Resource Centre is a hive of activity!  It offers a flexible learning space with a range of digital and paper resources to support student learning.


The Resource Centre is open from 8:30 until 3:30. Peak times for borrowing are 8:30 – 8:50 and 3:10 – 3:30.


Jo, our Teacher Librarian collaborates with classes throughout the year to develop units of Inquiry.  Students use the varied resources within the Resource Centre to support them in their learning.  This includes a set of iPads.

Lost and Damaged Books

If students return damaged books or kits we ask for replacement costs. Most books are damaged by leaking drink bottles so it helps to put books in a plastic bag. Generally we only ask for replacement costs for lost books once there has been a thorough check of the classroom and we have completed a stock take at the end of the year. We also understand that most books come back!


“We should turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.”
