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 Teacher-Librarian collaborates with classroom teachers
to plan, teach and assess units of study according to the curriculum for their
grades. The Manitoba Education document Literacy with Information Communication
Technology Across the Curriculum, or LwICT is implemented in the units.
Students are taught how to use technology in various ways to gather information
that answers their inquiry and also to present their findings. All classes,
Grades 1-5 complete two or three projects a year with the Teacher-Librarian.
Information literacy skills are taught while they research their topics. Both
the information literacy skills and the technology skills are essential life
skills for a successful future.
