The South Oakleigh College Library is a bright and friendly space, focusing on creating a reading culture for students of all year levels and abilities. Access to computers, study areas and a relaxed reading section enhances learning.
During classes, students are introduced to new and recommended books, authors and writing genres. Year 7 and 8 students discover how to navigate the library catalogue and develop their research skills. Adjacent to the library is the Reading Room, a calm area where junior students have weekly reading sessions to both develop and challenge their literacy skills.
Reading incentive programmes, such as the Premiers’ Reading Challenge and the House Points Reading Challenge, are held throughout the year.
During lunch, the library is a welcoming and supportive space. There are opportunities for students to connect by playing chess and other board and card games, or simply relax with a book or magazine.
