The year starts with orientation for the new Year 9’s. They are shown how the library works and how easy it is to search for resources.

For seniors, research is an integral part of the curriculum, requiring them to be not only technologically savvy but also able to find written resources. Students, at Years 11 and 12, work on NCEA wide reading standards and it can be pretty daunting trying to find  appropriate texts.

Student librarians are very important in the running of the library. Their job is to shelve, issue and return books during interval and lunchtime.
