Nairne School Library and Resource Centre

Library facilities

The Nairne School’s library is a welcoming open space with comfortable carpeted areas for discussions, story-telling and reading. With a diverse collection of fiction and non-fiction books the library caters to everyone at the school; from vibrant picture books and engaging novels for students to a range of stimulating teaching materials for our teachers. Improving and supporting literacy skills are one of major priorities.

To provide students with online research resources, there are numerous computers, laptops and iPads available site-wide. We ensure your child’s access to information on the internet is restricted to suitable material through the appropriate use of internet filters.

Premier’s Reading Challenge

Each year Nairne School takes part in the Premier’s Reading Challenge, which was introduced to improve literacy and help students develop enjoyment from reading. Students need to read a minimum of 12 books to complete the challenge, 8 of which must be from the official booklist. The remaining 4 books can be chosen by the student. Our goal of 100% student participation each year is always achieved and celebrated.
