Our school library is not just a place where students can come to borrow books. It is an inviting, community space, where students are able to conduct research, play games, use computers and learn about authors and illustrators and how libraries work. It invites students to relax at their leisure, with mats, comfortable chairs, desks and displays of books that are regularly updated.
Classes visit the library once a week for class borrowing and students can also borrow books in the morning before school and during lunchtimes. The teacher-librarian works with teachers and classes on Inquiry Based Learning – units of work based around a theme.
All students in the school are encouraged to participate in the Premier’s Reading Challenge where various medals are awarded, depending on the student’s years of involvement. Our own North Haven Reading Challenge rewards students for the number of pages read during the year with book prizes - a highlight during the year is Children’s Book Week held in August.
