The Information Resource Centre's 'hands on', creative and problem solving' activities provide an opportunity for students to work collaboratively on projects. Experiences provides:

  • fresh, vibrant evidence of the entrepreneurship, energy and integrity that makers bring to their work
  • a vital role in supporting social and emotional intelligence and growth.
  • away from screen time engagement
  • an opportunity to make friends
  • an opportunity to voice social justice and environmental issues through art making practice.


Search engines are a useful tool, but how can students get the best results from them? Join the fictional Professor Doogle as she looks at skills including: selecting and searching search engines and data bases; using precise keywords; predicting expected results to assess credibility of the information, and assessing website credibility.
