Learning Resource Centre
The Resource Centre actively supports teaching and learning in the College by providing access to quality information from a variety of sources, in a technology-rich setting. Our focus is on developing students digital literacy skills in the areas of information literacy, critical and creative thinking, and information technology, in a dynamic environment which is adaptive to and embraces change.
The Teacher Librarian works collaboratively with colleagues to develop students’ research skills; and to create opportunities that spark students’ curiosity and deepen their thinking, through engaging in inquiry-based learning. The Resource Centre team places great importance on strengthening students’ literacy skills, playing a key role in promoting strategies to ensure students can identify the key message in the information they encounter, in order to critically evaluate its purpose and meaning.
The Resource Centre promotes and encourages students interest in recreational reading. Our dedicated reading lounge is encompassed by a rich and diverse fiction collection, and complemented by a digital eBook and audiobook platform; providing an oasis for students to delve into stories and explore new experiences.
Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of extra-curricular opportunities through the Resource Centre, including lunch time book clubs, after school book clubs with St Pius X College, completing the Premier’s Reading Challenge, and engaging with current awareness programmes, competitions and celebratory events such as Book Week. Students have the opportunity to contribute to the life of the College by volunteering as a Library Monitor. Fostering a love of reading and an appreciation of quality literature is always at the heart of what we do.
