Resource Centre

The Resource Centre is an integral part of teaching and learning at Minden. The open space design fosters flexible access to encourage collaboration and inquiry-based learning.

Our Library is a modern, air-conditioned space used for both formal and informal learning opportunities. All classes have allocated times each week to visit the library to return and borrow books and conduct research.

The computer lab, in conjunction with class sets of laptops and iPads, is used extensively by all year levels as part of daily learning activities.

The Resource Centre is also used as an engaging lunchtime space providing activities such as games, construction, puzzles, writing, drawing, and a quiet area for children to relax and read.

Library Borrowing
 
Students and staff are able to borrow the library resources. All classes have an allocated time for borrowing books and are encouraged to change books on a weekly basis. All students are given a maximum of two weeks to return borrowed items.
 

Prep and year 1 students may borrow one book at a time. This limit may increase to two when children display responsible borrowing and returning behaviours.

Children in years 2 -6 may borrow between two and three books per week. They are encouraged to choose books of interest at their reading level.

All students are expected to use an appropriate library bag (waterproof) to help protect the books.
