The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is situated on the ground floor in the main building, adjacent to the Main Hall and Cyber Café and provides a pleasant working environment for independent study and reading for students before school, during break, lunch and after school. It is open every day, Monday to Friday 8am – 4pm. The LRC is managed by an LRC Manager and supported by student librarians who are involved in all the day to day tasks, as well as special events at throughout the year.
All students are automatically members of the library when they start at the school. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for the books they borrow; they are expected to return their books in a timely manner and in good condition so they can be enjoyed by others.
The LRC has approximately 6,000 fiction and non-fiction books, together with a Careers Library, magazines and 31 computers for student use. There is desk seating for 30 students, informal seating and several dedicated reading areas with comfortable seating, where students can lose themselves in a book. Students may borrow up to two books at a time, for a period of two weeks. The broad fiction stock reflects the diversity of our students, the importance of reading for pleasure and reading as a foundation for educational success. The stock is kept up to date with new fiction on a termly basis and appropriate recommendations from students are welcomed.
