St Peter’s Library Resource Centre (LRC) aims to be a vital part of the school’s teaching and learning program by providing an up-to-date and well-balanced collection of resources that reflect the school’s teaching and learning program facilitating Cooperative Planning and Teaching (CPT) between the Teacher-Librarian and classroom teachers so resources are used effectively.

Library Sessions

Each class has a weekly library session with the Teacher-Librarian (T-L).   Students complete literature and research skills planned cooperatively by the T-L and class teacher to complement or extend current classroom units of work.  Students also borrow during this time.

Lost Books

Overdue notices are printed at the end of each term. Students cannot borrow if their book is overdue.  Borrowers who have not returned long overdue books by the end of term will receive a letter from the LRC requiring replacement costs to be paid.

Parent Help

Parents are welcome to help in the LRC with book covering, mending, maintenance and shelving.  Your support, no matter how big or small is ALWAYS welcome!!!!  Please come in to see us if you would like to help.

LRC Celebrations

Each year, the students have the opportunity to celebrate their love of reading through activities in BOOK WEEK. All students are offered the opportunity to buy books at discounted prices at our annual Book Fair.

You are always welcome in the Library Resource Centre ……
