An inclusive, dynamic, information rich learning environment providing students and staff access to a range of resources 24/7.
CSPD school libraries are physical and digital places of inquiry and reading.
They provide access to a range of resources that help students 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 Thomas Aquinas our library is a focal point of the school – a centre of school resources. The library is instrumental in effectively supporting our learning environment and is also an important centre of technology.
The students borrow from the library each week and our students participate in the annual Premier’s Reading Challenge. The library holds an annual Book Fair where families are able to buy their own books for their children or as gifts.
Teacher Librarians are on hand to assist students with locating quality information from relatable sources and ensure it is used in an ethical manner. All library staff have a great passion for literature and are on hand to provide help to students to find their next ‘great read’.
Students 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.
