Dear Parents and Students

In last year’s Parent Satisfaction Survey, we received many comments about our library facilities being inadequate, which was also a concern of mine.  We built this into our summer plans and managed to set aside a dedicated library space on our first floor and appoint a qualified Librarian, Ms Tania Islam.  After spending the last few weeks getting all of the books and resources organised, I am delighted to report that we had our official opening of the Library on Thursday with a select group of Primary and Secondary students.  We celebrated the opening with a competition where students were required to seek out select books and earn ‘house points’ in the process.  Congratulations to Hoba who earned the most points on the day. 

Following last week’s e-Newsletter article where I discussed the importance of developing 21st century learning skills in students, the role of the library should be highlighted as of special importance in this tremendous challenge.  The Library and Librarian have a key role in enhancing digital and information literacy in students as they become critical and creative thinkers. 

Although we still have some way to go in our journey, you should expect to see the following from the NAISAK library: 

• a common learning area

• a centre of knowledge creation and knowledge consumption

• a programme impacting self-directed learning, differentiation, and project-based learning

• the impact of quality information on teaching, learning and student-created products

• social media as a platform for students to access information

(Adapted from Scholastic Library Publishing, 2015)

On behalf of the community, I would like to welcome and encourage our students to use the library as part of their regular programme of studies.  I am pleased to report that we are already modifying timetables to ensure this occurs.
