The College takes pride in its IRC which is staffed by a qualified librarian and team members who are passionate about supporting the staff and students with their information and reading needs. Our dedicated staff are professionals with diverse backgrounds in information management, IT and teaching.
Staff offer a welcoming environment where discussions with individual students about their reading are commonplace throughout the day. Positive learning relationships are also fostered with students who regularly seek assistance with writing and other library related tasks.
Year 7 classes are timetabled in the IRC for one of their lessons each week. The wide reading lessons form an integral component of the English course. Using this lesson our staff promote a wide variety of books to students fostering a positive relationship with our students and nurture the love of reading and literature.
The IRC is a gateway to the world of inquiry. We assist students with access and interpretation of information. It is important that our students are literate, critical thinkers in a world saturated by information.
The IRC resources are both print and digital. Our print collection includes fiction, picture books, graphic novels, magazines, newspapers, class sets and a range of audio visual equipment which can be borrowed for class use. Digital resources can be accessed remotely from the comfort of your home as well as school. We subscribe to many databases and have these, and other wonderful resources.
