Library lessons

KPS Library is an essential learning area for all students. Every class attends the Library for 80 minutes each fortnight to have a lesson with the Librarian. During this time students take part in a range of tasks and are able to borrow and return books. During library lessons students develop information literacy skills through the exploration of both print and digital resources. The development of 21st Century learning skills  is reinforced in the library through the incorporation of research and digital technologies that are both challenging and creative for all students.
