Library

 
The school has a full time teacher-librarian who coordinates all aspects of the library use with the help of a library teacher aide. As a resource teacher, the teacher-librarian at Albany Hills State School works collaboratively with the class teachers to support literacy learning. This includes helping with resource planning, working with groups of students and teaching whole class groups.
We celebrate literacy appreciation by recognising special literary days throughout the year, including Children’s Book Week in Term 3. We also have ongoing reading incentive schemes to encourage good reading practices, such as Super Reader and the Reading Championship.
The library is open before school, at both break times and after school, at which times children may borrow books or work with the resources in the library. Families are encouraged to use the library before school as a place to share stories together. All classes have a class borrowing time during the week and can borrow books for up to two weeks.
Students in Years 4-6 are eligible for selection and training as part of the Library Monitor program. They can use this as a step towards their Student Leader badge and many continue afterwards and love being an important part of our library.
Our courtyard has recently been renovated and is used for many aspects of school life.  It has been turned into an outdoor learning environment that is appealing for all.  This area can be used during break times and is available for other school events.
