Primary Section Libraries
The Primary Section Libraries serve the community with an ever-growing collection of books, reference materials and online resources. The libraries are at the heart of the school and aim to promote and embrace a reading culture with all our families, nurturing curiosity and fostering research skills.
The Lower Primary Library is open to parents and care givers at designated times throughout the week, during this time they are welcome to borrow books to share with their child. Once joining the Library, books may be borrowed to enhance the pleasure of reading at home. Whilst in the Upper Primary, students are encouraged to visit throughout the day, including break times.
As part of their regular timetable, both Lower and Upper Primary classes visit the Library every week where they can borrow a ‘Just Right Book’ or a book of which is of interest to them. This also includes a range of Arabic books within the Upper Primary.
