Role of the School Library
The school library is integral to the teaching and learning
process. The school library facilitates the work of the 
classroom teacher and ensures each student has equitable access to resources, irrespective of home 
opportunities or constraints.While the role of the school
library remains constant, its design, digital platform, 
strategies and tools change as pedagogy and 
technology changes.







   School library programs and services seek to...
  • Create and develop motivating, flexible physical and digital learning spaces.
  • Run independent learning programs, which integrate information resources and technologies.
  • Equip students with the skills necessary to succeed in a constantly changing technological, social and economic environment.
  • Collaborate with classroom teachers to plan, implement and evaluate inquiry-based programs that will ensure students acquire skills to collect, critically analyse and organise information, problem-solve and communicate their findings.
  • Provide and promote quality fiction to develop and sustain in students the habit and enjoyment of reading for pleasure and to enrich students' intellectual, aesthetic, cultural and emotional growth.
  • Cater for differences in learning and teaching styles through the provision of, and equality of access to, a wide range of curriculum resources - fiction and non-fiction, digital, print, audio and video.
  • Provide teachers with access to relevant curriculum information and professional development materials within and outside the school; and opportunities to cooperatively plan, implement and evaluate learning programs.
