VIRTUAL TOUR

Primary Students

Each week a half-hour lesson conducted by a specialist primary teacher-librarian provides students with skills in finding and using information effectively. During this time students are also encouraged to gain an appreciation for reading for leisure and develop the habit of reading regularly.

Secondary Students

Classes regularly visit the library with teachers for research and instruction relevant to class work. The Head of Library works with classes and individuals to enable students to become effective and critical users of information.
