At St Michael’s Catholic Primary School Lane Cove we have the McAuley Centre that is open to students from Monday to Friday lunchtimes. We offer an array of activities that students can be involved in such as chess lessons, reading, model making using Lego and Knex, drawing, writing, colouring in, card games, quiet activities and robotics. Students are also able to use the library at lunchtimes to complete any homework or explore using the computers and iPads.
Our library provides a social space to meet, collaborate, research, learn, share, and relax. The staff work to develop a reading culture and raise the levels of information literacy across the school by leading students through processes which empower them to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers and skillful, efficient and discerning researchers.
The Oliver library management system, together with the ACEN digital library provide 24/7 access to a wealth of authentic, authoritative, age appropriate resources to specifically meet student and staff needs.
