Consultation for the Collection Policy began in Term 2. Staff, parents and students were invited to be involved in the consultation process that continued through Terms 2 and 3. The final version has been approved. This Collection Policy establishes the principles guiding the selection, acquisition, evaluation, preservation and withdrawal of materials and communicates them to the school community.
It supports the identification of the strengths and weaknesses of the collection to inform future planning and funding priorities.
It is an important step in moving the Library forward.
A survey was created to guide the development of the Library Services for 2016. Teaching staff were asked to complete the survey during a staff meeting and the collated results will be used to frame and develop services.
We have had some really positive feedback about the Library layout. A retired teacher returning to our school for TRT work commented "It looks so bright and cheery in here - really engaging".
This week have a new addition to the library, a display stand. Students designed the new layout to include this new addition to the library.
First impressions were very positive. One student this morning stopped in her tracks saying, "I love the setup. This looks amazing!"
cost of staying where you are is greater than the cost of risking change
