The Junior Library is a vibrant, welcoming environment for students, staff and parents to enjoy for recreational and educational purposes.
We strive to ensure that not only are learning needs met but also that every child feels valued and happy. Our Library resources support the teaching of the curriculum and develop our student's interests and hobbies. Incorporating the use of iPads for searching the library databases, library lessons are also linked to the curriculum and teach essential information skills for 21st Century learning.
A collection of books incorporating Learner Profile values has been developed to support teaching and learning activities. Chinese books have also been acquired to support language learning. In addition, we have a collection of e-resources including online newspapers and magazines, which children can access on their iPads.
There are two student library reps per class. One rep is responsible for managing the class library and the other helps the library officers carry out a variety of tasks ranging from shelving books to recommending good books to their peers.
The Junior Library runs the Junior School’s Readers’ Cup competition, encouraging the reading of outstanding books which have won awards around the world. This competition is designed to further promote a reading culture throughout the school and specifically to encourage children to read good quality literature.
