Learning Resource Centre (LRC)
The LRC is situated at the heart of the school over two floors and is open to all students during break times and private study periods.
Monday – Friday: 8.00am – 4.30pm
The ground floor library houses most of the LRC’s physical resources, including over 5,000 fiction and non-fiction books, magazines, journals and DVDs, and has comfortable chairs, cushions and bean bags to create a relaxed reading environment. The first floor study area provides computers, study spaces and small group tables for independent and quiet study. The school has a subscription to the JSTOR digital library of academic journals, books and primary sources, to which all staff and students have access.
Students can manage their own library accounts using Heritage Online or the MyCirqa app. All students receive a library induction at the start of Year 7 or Year 12, and are encouraged to recommend new additions to the library stock throughout the year. Many act as library helpers during the busy lunchtime period, volunteer as student archivists assisting with the school’s archive, or look after the ever-popular board games trolley.
The LRC is a vibrant study space that inspires and nurtures students’ love of reading and literacy. Students can write book reviews and make recommendations, participate in shadowing schemes, book clubs and judging panels, talk to authors and those in publishing, and even take part in fundraising readathons.
