The Sefton High School Library is a user-friendly space comprising some 26,000 resources in an open plan interior organised to facilitate the movement of students between computers and book shelves as they research individually or in class groups.
Study carrels and supervision are provided for seniors during non-face-to-face periods.
The fiction area has comfortable seating for students and classes throughout the school day.
An excellent fiction collection has been developed to cater for the school population’s reading interests and to support student success and achievement.
To further support the reading culture of the school, any student may recommend books to the library for purchasing and later borrowing.
The Sefton High School Work Planner has a section where all students in Years 7-12 can record their additional reading both fiction and non-fiction.
The Teacher Librarian instructs Year 7 in Information Skills classes and works closely with the English faculty to foster recreational reading by students in the junior years. He is also available to provide assistance to all students in their use of the library and for borrowing books.
Students are actively supported in achieving the Premiers’ Reading Challenge in Years 7-9. An additional program to support and promote reading and success – the Sefton High School Challenge is also run in conjunction with the Library.
