Our library is the information hub of the school providing a range of resources to support teaching and learning and fostering an environment that encourages students to develop their literacy skills through reading and research. It was totally renovated in 2020 to provide a flexible learning centre for students.
Reading is promoted in many ways including involvement in the Premier’s Reading Challenge, the Books in Homes program for all year 4 students, Book Club, Book Fairs, author visits and the celebration of Book Week. Students from a Non-English speaking background can access the range of bilingual books.
Research and digital literacy skills are taught in collaboration with the classroom teacher. Students engage in collaborative online learning through Google Classroom. All students from Kindergarten to Year 6 visit the library on a weekly basis to borrow books. Library bags may be purchased from the school office.
At Greenacre Public School, we acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the Dharug People. We pay our respects to all elders for passing on their knowledge and culture of this land and thank them for allowing us to walk upon it. We also extend our respect to any other Aboriginal Peoples who are present here today.
Through deeds not words, we shall respect and look after this land on which we live and learn.
This land always was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
