About Us

The Lion Library features collaborative learning spaces, study spaces, a dedicated study area for our senior students, flexible shelving and furniture, and charging facilities.

Laptops are available for loan to be used in the library, and new technologies continue to be installed. Projectors and a TV panel now cater for larger audiences. The Lion Library offers programs, holds events, manages activities and encourages student leadership in our Technology Library Teams project, all of which develop 21st century skills in our students. We look forward to your visit.

Senior Students

There is a study area with individual study carrels dedicated to students in Years 11 and 12. Senior students also have access to HSC resources to assist with their work. The latest issues are held at the Circulation Desk, please see library staff.

Book Reviews


We love to hear what students think of the books they read, and so do the other students. Students can write a short book review on the bright sticky notes found at the new book display. Alternatively, they can write a review directly onto Oliver.
