CEDP school libraries are physical and digital places of inquiry and reading.
They provide access to a range of resources that help kids on their Learning journey and help inspire purposeful learning.
Through access to our library resources and services, students develop a range of learner dispositions and capabilities to cultivate a culture of curiosity, creativity, imagination and innovation.
Our physical library
At St Patrick's, the library plays an integral part in the teaching and learning of the school.
Our newly re-designed library forms part of our new Learning Hub and is open to all students daily. The new library includes an outside learning area. Children enjoy borrowing sessions with their teacher each week, where they are encouraged to borrow appropriate books for their age and their reading ability. To borrow books, children must have a library bag (which is available from the School Office). Children are taught to respect and take good care of library resources.
All children are encouraged to participate in the Premier's Reading Challenge each year and our library resources support this.
Students also have access to the eLibrary - the digital gateway to a range of quality online resources that encourage and enhance reading and support inquiry learning.
The virtual library gives access to an electronic bookshelf and database access for students and staff.
