Holy Cross Library assists in the educational development of individual students. A wide variety of resources are available to support programmes in the classrooms. Consideration is given to the quality, capacity and extent of services to individuals and groups of children, while recognising their special needs and expectations.
Respect and care for Holy Cross’ resources are stressed at all times and a library bag is an essential part of the borrowing process. The Library and Media Centre are open during some lunch periods for indoor social activities and general use, with teacher supervision.
Students are encouraged and supported by their teachers and Library staff to use the library for personal enjoyment, reading and for study purposes. With staff supervision, students access computers in the Library for browsing and information gathering, and the Media Centre, for skills sessions. Computers are used, along with a variety of resources, every day, in all classrooms and across all learning areas.
