Rationale

School library is a major educational resource for the teachers and students of Alexandria Park Community School. It is primarily a learning and information center that facilitates the plan and implementation of the teaching program of the school.

Programs

Alexandria Park Community School libraries offer:

  • A literature program

  • An information skills program

These skills are necessary for the development of independent and life-long learners.

Method

APCS Library caters for Kindergarten to Year 12 students.

All students in K-6 could visit the library once a week according to a scheduled library timetable. Teachers and teacher-librarian will collaboratively teach the above programs.

APCS students in Years 7 - 12 would receive information skills lessons delivered by the teacher-librarian in high school classrooms. They could also visit the Book room at lunch times.

Our students participate in the Premire's Reading Challenge and Children's Book Week.
