Our library plays an essential role in the education of our students. It houses our computer lab, Diverse Learning team, STEM space and has an open air multi-use deck. The layout and design allows flexible use of the space depending on the needs of students and staff and can accommodate both small group and whole class sessions. 
 
The library is also a place for students to come and relax, play board games or enjoy some colouring. It provides access to an extensive range of texts which can be borrowed during allocated library class time. Students are also encouraged to use the library before school and at break times (Please check library door for current opening hours). Parents/guardians are also welcome to borrow our books.
