St Stephen’s School is home to four libraries, all under the Collinson Library name. Named after one of the school’s founding fathers and the longest serving Principal (1989-2002), Reverend Gavin Collinson, the libraries are spread across our campuses and offer modern facilities and learning experiences.
The Library services include virtual and print resources, information literacy skills, books to suit all tastes, reading programs, iDigital skills and digital citizenship, a wireless environment, desktop computers and printing facilities, 24/7 access to databases, catalogue and digital resources, ICT support and value adds to teaching and learning programs.
The collaborative environment is taken to the next level in the Duncraig Primary School Library, which was recently refurbished into what is fondly known as “The Village”. The open-plan area houses a performance stage, quiet reading and study nooks, a large catalogue of books, a parent’s kitchen and coffee area and several helpful stations where staff are happy to help. It is a colourful and welcoming space that encourages students and families to gather end enjoy.
The spacious Carramar Library was also recently redesigned, offering a fresh space where students and staff come together to foster a sense of community, with groups from Kindergarten right through to Year 12 working together.
