The Brother Mark Farrelly Resource Centre houses the senior library. The Resource Centre provides support for students in all areas of the curriculum and upholds the College commitment to literacy through an emphasis on reading as a worthwhile leisure activity. The Resource Centre provides an environment conducive to learning and the library staff are on hand to assist students with their research as well as their assignment writing skills.
The most important aspect of the Resource Centre is the Integration of 21st Century Literacies into Learning. The library programs aim to empower students to become effective lifelong learners. In order to achieve this, Teacher Librarians work co-operatively with academic staff to plan lessons and activities that support the development of these skills. Students who are critical in their thinking, motivated and confident in managing their learning, and who have developed information and digital fluency, will be better able to meet the challenges of life beyond secondary school.
Opening hours for the Senior Library:
- Monday to Thursday: 7:30 am – 5:00 pm
- Friday: 7:30 am – 3:30 pm
The library is open at both breaks providing students with to individual seminar rooms, small group study areas for assignment work and a place for quiet reading. Students also have access to specialised library staff for support with all their digital and information literacy needs. The library provides 24/7 access to information services, research guides and online support through the Brother Mark Farrelly page which can be accessed through the Student and Parent Portals.
