Library Lessons

The library is a busy place. Every class has both a time to borrow books each week and a time to work with Mrs Henderson in the library. Lessons may involve research units that tie in with current HSIE or  English units undertaken in class or they may be literature based units of work centred around a particular author or specific books. In their lesson time the children  will also explore the way a library works and learn how to find and use information in a variety of formats.

Technology is a large component of teaching in the library. Most lessons incorporate the use of the interactive whiteboard as well as a bank of computers for research and publishing activities.

We have a wonderful collection of books for student borrowing and spend a generous budget on new resources each year. Our collection also supports the school curriculum with a wide range of resources for teacher use.
