Home ; Our College ; Library

Our library is a welcoming space, providing comfortable seating and a quiet area for students to work, study, read or play board/card games.

Students can access the library at recess and lunchtimes however, food and drinks are to be consumed outside.

Students should bring their student ID card with them when borrowing resources from the library.

There is a limit on how many books each student can borrow, which is dependent on their year level. Books can be borrowed for up to 2 weeks, and if required an extension can be arranged.

We appreciate the prompt return of books; we will send out overdue notices regularly via their care group teacher. Any resources which are returned damaged beyond repair will incur the cost of the item.
