About Our Library

Library borrowing:

Library lessons and borrowing are provided weekly to students. Kindergarten and Years 1 and 2 students can borrow 2 books during their class borrowing times. Years 3-6 students are allowed to borrow up to 3 books. Students must ensure they have a library bag to keep their books safe.

Book Week:

Our library celebrates Book Week each year. To help celebrate, we have a book character mufti day. We also have a guest author or illustrator visit our school. Our library is proud to display the artworks gifted to the school by many visiting illustrators over the years. This acts as wonderful reminder of our Book Week celebrations.

Book Fair:

Every year we hold an annual Book Fair during Education Week. Students and families are invited to purchase books, with the money raised used to purchasing new books and resources for the school.

Premiers Reading Challenge (PRC):

Each year students are invited to participate in the PRC. More information about this challenge can be found on the PRC’s website. In 2023, we had over 490 students successfully complete the challenge, receiving a special certificate for their participation in Term 4.
