At CCPS the library not only provides an array of resources to support teaching and learning but also fosters an environment that encourages students to develop their literacy skills through reading and research.
Reading is promoted in many ways. We have been involved in the Premier’s Reading Challenge since its inception and it is embedded into the school’s literacy programme. Reading and the love of literature are also promoted in our school when we celebrate Book Week. At this time we invite an author or illustrator to talk to our students and display students’ work which relate to the Children’s Book Council’s Chidren’s Book of the Year Awards.Twice yearly we hold very successful book fairs from which we earn a percentage of the sales and are donated a large number of books. Parents are also encouraged to borrow books and to help as volunteers.
Research skills are taught (in collaboration with the classroom teacher) which enable students to locate resources (both hard copy and digital), select the most appropriate, organise and then present in the most meaningful way.
