Welcome to our school library
Welcome to the library and to our program of information literacy. We
believe that every student should have the skills necessary to navigate in
today's information-rich society. Determining information needs, recognizing and
selecting appropriate resources - whether print or online and managing the
information are fundamental skills needed for successful academic

The library is an important resource for the school. The regular program
includes one literacy period for each class per cycle. Students are also taught
information literacy skills and are challenged to improve their reading
selections. Once or twice a year, the classroom teachers and the
teacher-librarian collaborate in planning, teaching and assessing units from the
curriculum through the resource-based learning (RBL) process. This process helps
to improve the students’ information literacy skills, technology skills, and
reading and writing of non-fiction.
The library is the hub of our busy school. The regular program includes one
literacy period for each class per cycle. Classroom teachers and the teacher
librarian collaborate on grade level topics according to the cirriculum.
Students are taught how to use technology in various ways to gather information
and present their learning.
