Library

Our school library at GRC Hurstville Boys Campus is a vibrant and inclusive environment that is designed to support:

  • reading for pleasure
  • guided inquiry to search, locate and evaluate information
  • student wellbeing
  • access to a range of resources.  

Our refurbished library is well-resourced with technology and physical books specifically targeted to the interests and reading levels of our students. Spaces are created purposefully to support a range of learning modes, including:

  • explicit
  • discussion
  • collaboration
  • independent
  • demonstration
  • experiential. 

More information on learning modes can be found on the department’s website.

 

Library lessons focus on literacy, information fluency, and digital literacy. Educational software is used to support effective library programs. These include:

  • Education Perfect - for personalised learning pathways to develop literacy
  • Reading Renaissance - for personalised reading recommendations and tracking of reading levels
  • Oliver - for managing, recommending and loaning resources
  • ePlatform - an online library for borrowing eBooks and Audiobooks.
