The Early Years and Elementary library is at the centre of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) , supporting and enhancing the development of the Learner Profile through the selection of appropriate resources, flexible scheduling and promotion of the PYP framework of learning.
Our resources are varied, including books, story sacks, DVDs, magazines and games. Children use iPads and eReaders to enjoy eBooks and digital resources. Students can access the library during breaks, after school and during weekly scheduled sessions.
The library stimulates “intercultural awareness” through the provision of materials reflecting a variety of cultures and languages.
The librarian, Ilaria Buccedi, is responsible for delivering a progressive programme of library orientation to help children develop a lifelong love for reading and inquiry research skills.
The Middle & High School Library provides a range of books, periodicals, magazines, DVDs and online resources to support the school curriculum and to inspire a life-long love of reading. E-readers and computers are available to use in the library allowing students to access a wide range of digital resources.
The Middle & High School librarian works with teachers to ensure the connection between the resources and the topics covered in the classroom. Helping students develop their information literacy, digital citizenship skills, their commitment to academic honesty as well as their desire to read for pleasure. The librarian delivers sessions on library orientation, citation systems for academic writing, and research skills. Library sessions are structured as an ongoing programme of meetings with progressive didactic aims and outcomes tailored to the needs of different school grades.
The Librarian, Carla MacCallum, is a library and educational services expert.
