An integral part of the library program is the collaborative teaching role of the teacher librarian. The TL supports teachers and students in their units of inquiry and promotes & teaches the skills of lifelong reading and information literacy.
Our Mission is:
To enable students to become lifelong learners and readers, as well as both effective and ethical information users. The library is focussed on student learning outcomes. To achieve this mission, the teacher librarian will work in partnership with the leadership team and teachers to:
foster the value of reading for pleasure and the appreciation and enjoyment of literature.
develop students’ information literacy skills through guided inquiry, using the NSW Board of Studies Curriculum.
provide access to current, high quality information resources and literature in a variety of formats, that support the school's priorities, student needs, abilities and interests.
provide accessible services to assist both students and teachers in easily and independently accessing resources and information.
provide guidance to staff and students for the integration of digital information and ICT capabilities into the learning experience.
