Our Reseource Centre was renamed The MacKillop Centre in 2015 in honour of Australia's first saint, Saint Mary MacKillop, who was so passionate about giving all children an opportunity to learn. It is our hope and vision that The MacKillop centre is a place of community, where we can all come together to learn, work and relax.
The Mackillop Centre is located in the heart of our school and is easily accessible by all staff and students. It houses a vast collection of fiction and non-fiction resources for students to use and borrow.
The resouce collection has been carefully compiled to support the effective implementation of the Australia Curriculm. Students, teachers and staff have access to a wide range of contemporary resources that support and enrich learning and teaching.
What We Do
The Mackillop Centre is staffed by a Teacher-Librarian and Library Assistant. There is a variety of flexible spaces within the library for staff and students to work in small groups, individually or as a whole class. There are speces for whol class shared reading and nooks for students to quietly relax and curl up with a book. It is common to see students coding robits and designing solutions in one area of the library, whilst a second class of students and their teacher are engaging in a story and choosing their own books in another area. The MacKillop Centre is a vibrant and engaging space.
The collection is managed online using the OLIVER database.
