Resource Centre Use
The teacher librarians specialise in guiding students through the information process, with resource-based units of work and supporting staff with co-operative planning, programming and teaching.
Teachers use the Resource Centre to work on resource based learning units (with teacher librarians) small group tasks, reading or whatever.
Teacher librarians also foster enjoyment of literature by all.
There is a photocopier in the Resource Centre for students and staff to use at a minimal charge. Students use their ID cards to pay for using this facility, as they do when using the Internet.
Areas and equipment of the Resource Centre can be booked for use by whole classes, groups or individuals. Individual students may use the Resource Centre for study, providing they have written, dated notes or diary notes from their teacher, explaining the task they must complete, the length of time they will be in the Resource Centre and when they need to return to their classroom.
