The Hub – Library and Information Services
The Information and Resource Hub is an innovative, flexible space where students meet, collaborate, learn, read, research, study and flourish through the combination of a traditional library-based approach with the latest technological innovations.
The Hub is a friendly, safe and inclusive environment that supports the teaching and learning programs of the whole school. We offer flexible learning spaces, classroom facilities, private study areas, quiet reading zones and inspiring collaboration areas. These spaces are designed to enhance the critical thinking, communication, literacy and research skills of our students.
The Hub is open school days from 8.00am to 4.00 pm.
Resources and facilities
The Hub offers a wide range of physical and electronic resources to support student learning and staff teaching. We offer a printing service, an extensive fiction collection, a current range of non-fiction books and several online databases, including EBSCO, ClickView and Britannica Online, all of which are linked to the Australian Curriculum. Students can enjoy various stimulating games at break times.
Teacher in Charge and the Reading Program
As an experienced English teacher, The Teacher-in-Charge acts as a dynamic link between the English Learning Area and the Hub. The Teacher-in-Charge ensures the delivery of student-focused learning activities and assists students and staff to integrate information and communication technologies into their teaching and learning programs.
The enjoyment of reading as a lifelong habit is a major focus of the Hub staff. The Teacher-In-Charge delivers a dedicated reading program for Year 7 students, and Year 8 students attend the Hub regularly for reading sessions during their English classes. We provide a comprehensive orientation program for all Year 7s in Term 1 and facilitate and supervise the learning experiences of our private study students.
Engaging and Learning
Our Library Officers create an engaging learning space that is safe and friendly for all students ensuring that your child feels connected and cared for. We have developed an understanding of the interests and needs of students and are highly influential in assisting and guiding them throughout their high school experience.
Transperth Student SmartRider cards are issued to all new students via the Hub. This student ID card is also used to borrow library resources. Students show their card at the Hub circulation desk when adding cash to their PaperCut student printing account. Lost cards are replaced at a fee of $5, usually within ten working days.
