Classes have weekly library sessions where they can borrow and return their books. All students are required to bring a school library bag to sessions to protect school resources.
Before school and at both breaks, students are welcome to visit the library to change their books, read, complete work, draw, play games and participate in a range of interests and activities.
Our comprehensive classroom English program is supported by a large collection of levelled texts encompassing fantasy, fiction, and non-fiction. There is a variety of other teacher resources housed centrally in our library for staff to choose from to enhance their classroom learning opportunities.
To further promote reading and enjoyment with literature, Guardian Angels celebrates Book Week annually in August to foster a love of reading by exploring the shortlist as selected by the Children's Book Council of Australia. We also hold an exciting book fair where students can purchase from a selection of heavily discounted books. Other literary events include author/illustrator visits and whole school participation in National Simultaneous Storytime.
In addition to our literary focus, the GA Library embraces technology by providing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) opportunities using Lego, VR headsets, robotics, E-sports and engineering build challenges throughout the year.
The library is constantly evolving as we build on our resources and develop a wider collection that is fun and engaging. Our core purpose is to inspire lifelong learning as students build their skills and knowledge by engaging positively with quality literature and developing their STEM capabilities.
The GA library is a safe, welcoming place of excitement, creativity and learning for all our students.
