Our library has a collection of over 21 000 resources and provides for the information needs of the whole school community. It is a hub for students and teachers to explore, discover, learn, communicate, interact and relax.

We have an extensive range of resources for borrowing, including fiction and non-fiction books, magazines, and graphic novels.

Library staff are available to assist students with research or book searches and all students are encouraged to borrow books to read for enjoyment.  Our younger students are also encouraged to read through the Accelerated Reader Program.

There is always something happening in the library: including new book displays, board games to play, Book Week Celebrations, Readers Cub, and Write a Book in A Day competition.
