Our Physical Library -
Sr Ann Marie Learning Centre

The Sr Ann Marie Learning Centre reflects the values of the Marist charism and provides a welcoming, shared school community space for all students. It is a space where students gather to work, study, read, create, collaborate, share, participate, think, and discover. Facilities include spaces for individual study and reading, group work, whole classes and a Makerspace with 3D printers and Apple iMacs for students involved in design-related, science and STEM projects.

The library’s collection continues to evolve over time in response to a range of learning needs, interests and abilities and caters to students with special needs, gifted and talented and ESL students. Resources include an extensive children's and young adult fiction collection, a well-developed non-fiction collection to support student learning across the curriculum, a range of multimedia resources including audio books, and a growing selection of quality digital resources.

In a supportive environment, students are encouraged to read for knowledge and pleasure, challenge their thinking, develop their skills and become lifelong, active learners.
