WCCS Library

A welcoming environment

The Library seeks to provide a welcoming environment for students, staff and the wider community. With a strong focus on information services, technical support, innovative education experiences and engagement with reading, it supports learning across Prep – Year 12. The Library is open before and during school for students in Kindergarten – Year 12, where reading, studying, socialising and game playing are common in our large, open-plan space.

Catering to all students

Areas exist for class teaching across the Primary and Secondary grades and our study area has been designed to support senior students in both individual and collaborative study. Quiet reading zones equipped with modern, soft furnishings encourage students to engage with literature. Small meeting rooms provide the flexibility for private study or tutoring and allow students to access external support services.

Expansive resources for flexible learning

Our collection comprises books (both Fiction and Nonfiction), magazines, textbooks, online resources and databases, and a Biblical Studies Library. Parents are welcome to borrow from the Library to support their child reading at home, or for their own enjoyment.

The Library focuses on the flexible delivery of future-focused learning that meets the needs of all students. Teacher Librarians work collaboratively with class teachers to plan learning experiences that suit the stage of development for each learner.
