Our children deserve no less than a qualified TL in every school library.

"Teacher librarians support and implement the vision of their school communities through advocating and building effective library and information services and programs that contribute to the development of lifelong learners."

The Teacher Librarian: 

  • understanding learners and their needs;
  • collaborating with teachers to plan and implement information literacy and literature programs;
  • ensuring the school library collection supports the school curriculum and community;
  • using technologies as teaching and learning tools;
  • creating effective learning environments;
  • participating in the school and wider learning community.

Our first 1000 signatures! at the Hub

Help make it more.

Today's Librarian Wordle





Please sign this petition 

and urge any other people you know 

who would be interested in 

ensuring that every school has a qualified TL to do so.

NSW DET video on head lice show you how to get rid of head lice.

HEAD LICE have unfortunately reared their ugly head again and are on the move.

Recently we have had a number of children having to be sent home because of this.

Please check your child’s hair and if necessary apply a suitable product to remove the lice.

Sometimes you may need to reapply the lotion two or even three times. 

All eggs must be removed to successfully eradicate the lice.

We understand that it is a difficult and tiresome job to do but unless all the eggs are removed they can re-hatch over night.

Many thanks for your co-operation.

Your P&C needs you.


Parents & Citizens Association meets
4th Monday of every month.

The next P&C meeting (the A.G.M.) is on 
Monday 23rd November 
at 7pm in the Staffroom. 

Immediately following the A.G.M. (say 7.30pm), there will be an Ordinary Meeting. At this meeting will be discussion around significant changes to the operation of the P&C run school canteen. 

Our school canteen may no longer be able to operate with a paid canteen supervisor. If so, the options will be to either (1) operate the canteen with volunteers, OR (2) close the canteen.

So if you and your friends are interested in giving the canteen a new start and are able to run it on a volunteer basis, come along to our next P&C meeting and talk about what you can or can’t do.

Any options (days/hours of operation, staffing, menu) will be considered because the alternative may have to be closure of the school canteen.
