The purpose of the school library is to enhance students' learning and teaching within the total educational program of the school.

Integrated library and resource-based programs provide opportunities for students to learn, practise and refine the information literacy and enquiry skills of defining, identifying, locating, organising, evaluating and to confidently use information regardless of format or medium and to sustain the enjoyment of reading for their whole lives.

Our teacher/librarian is Mrs Michelle Brush.

The library is an essential part of the school's quality teaching and learning programs across the curriculum and extra-curricular initiatives. Student-centred learning caters for learner diversity and utilises a range of print and digital sources for planned units of work which aim to develop transferable skills for confident, informed contemporary lifelong learning. Programs integrate and support emerging priorities in information and communication technologies.


The library is open during the entire school day. The school community may use the library every day before school, recess (except Friday), lunch time and after school. The homework centre is on in our library every Tuesday after school until 4 pm.


Students in years 7 to 10 may borrow up to four items at any one time. Students in years 11 and 12 may borrow up to ten items. Borrowing is for a period of two weeks. Some resources may be in heavy demand and will have shorter loans. All books may be renewed if not reserved by another student. If a library resource is lost or damaged beyond repair, it is expected that it will be replaced or paid for by the person who borrowed it.


Library cards

Students are encouraged to have a school ID card for borrowing purposes.
