The West Lakes Shore Library is a welcoming environment for students, staff and families. The library provides quality resources to support the Australian Curriculum.
We have a wide range of fiction, picture books, graphic novels, non-fiction resources and reference books to cater for all interests and reading abilities.
The purpose of the library is three fold;
To engage students with reading and value reading for pleasure
To develop students' information literacy skills
To provide teachers with rich, quality resources to support the teaching of the Australian Curriculum
Building a love of reading is a strong feature of the program offered by the Teacher Librarian. Working with every class, every week students are aligned to 'best fit' books and are able to select from an extensive range of interest books to take home. Class teachers work alongside the Teacher Librarian to discuss student's individual interests and undertake reading conferences to support their learning. Focused explicit writing lessons linked to site improvement focused areas, are also taught by the librarian whilst teachers focus on targeted support for students with English as an Additional Language.
