John Henry Cardinal Newman Library and Resource Centre
The school library and resource centre is integral to the teaching and learning process. The Newman Centre aids the work of St Pauls teaching staff and ensures each student has equal access to resources.
While the role of the school library remains constant, its design, digital platform, strategies and tools change as ways of teaching and technology changes. The Newman Centre is a flexible learning space, our range of resources are designed to equip students with the skills necessary to succeed in a constantly changing technological, social and economic environment.
Teacher Librarians are on hand to assist students with locating quality information from relatable sources and ensure it is used in an ethical manner. All library staff have a great passion for literature and are on hand to provide help to students to find their next ‘great read’.
Students have access to the eLibrary - the digital gateway to a range of quality online resources that encourage and enhance reading, and support inquiry learning.
