The CLC is a welcoming, vibrant and engaging library, with a great range of books and other resources for students' recreational reading and academic research. A culture of reading is encouraged with classes visiting regularly for silent reading sessions. Specialist lessons are facilitated in the CLC Seminar Room to teach students vital research skills. During breaks, students play games, enjoy book club and trivia competitions, read, work on homework & quiet study and volunteer with the CLC Club.
We provide many learning enrichment activities in the library to extend and challenge our students. These include Readers Cup, Public Speaking, Tournament of Minds, Debating, On the Spot Impromptu Speaking, SLAM (Student Learning and Mentoring) and Maths & Literacy Mentoring.
In Term 3 we celebrate Book Week, a wonderful week celebrating the joys of reading. It's full of games, competitions and prizes, as well as our famous Book Week Parade. Throughout the year the CLC becomes a central hub hosting special events including the Bastille Day cheese tasting & band performances, and the Off the Wall Art Gallery.
The library is open daily from 7.30 am. Homework Centre is held Monday to Thursday until 3.30 pm. Learning Services Staff assist students with homework or assignments, and teachers often arrange to meet students to provide additional assistance.
