We encourage a love of reading amongst our staff and students and our collection is continually evolving to reflect the interests of our readers. The library is open on Monday to Friday from 8m for senior students and 8:30am for our junior students.

Our library is a comfortable, air conditioned place for all learners to have the best possible environment for their learning. There are two areas with computers for class use, one of these areas is available to students during their break to work on assignments or school work.
