All Greenhills students visit the library each week with their classroom teacher. This session involves the development of skills needed to locate books and resources for both information and pleasure as well as an exposure to a variety of literature and authors. There is provision within this library session for borrowing. This encourages students to make reading a regular part of their life.
Our Library is:
Well stocked with picture books, junior novels, novels, non-fiction and a variety of reference books.
An environment where children enjoy reading especially in our break out vertical garden and quiet zones.
Children learn skills to help them make the best use of the Library such as understanding that picture books have one letter, novels have three letters and non-fiction uses the Dewey Decimal System.
Coloured charts with non-fiction topics to help students find non-fiction books.
During Book Week each year we display an array of the latest books. The children dress up as favourite book characters.
Children are able to use the library at lunchtimes to read books, play quiet board games and access computer workstations.
Michelle Arthur is our wonderful and very knowledgeable Library Technician who is on hand to support teachers and children locate and use our valuable resources.
