Our focus is on developing students Digital Literacy skills in the areas of information literacy, critical thinking and information technology in a dynamic environment which is adaptive and embraces change.

Classes have the opportunity to work with the Teacher Librarian to develop their research skills, and undertake Guided Inquiry tasks.

The Resource Centre places great importance in its role in strengthening students literacy skills, by promoting and encouraging students interest in recreational reading and developing an appreciation of quality literature.
