Winston Heights Public School's library is located in the centre of the school and this is a central part of our students' learning environment. Our library houses many and varied resources including books, big books, audio books, games and puzzles.
Each class visits our school library for weekly lessons. The students engage in a variety of information skills, library skills and literature experiences. The library is also open for students four lunchtimes each week. Passive play lunchtime activities include borrowing, reading, drawing, Lego, chess, puzzles, board games and playdoh.
Literacy & Book Character Dress- up Day 2018
There is a strong link between the classroom and the library for all classes. The teacher-librarian and classroom teachers work closely together to provide outstanding learning opportunities for all students Kindergarten to Year 6.
Independence encourages responsibility. The library is newly renovated with a custom built charge desk enabling students to return and borrow books independently. It is fully air-conditioned, with three seperate work spaces including two recreational reading areas. iPads are available for Oliver searches, Premier's Reading Challenge and research by students. Students are encouraged to use the library for both personal enjoyment and learning.
In Term 3, we celebrate Children's Book Week with out Book Character Dress-Up Day and combine this with a book character parade and literacy enrichment activities.
Our library welcomes all students and all students value our library!
