The Discovery Centre is a special place for our community, one in which students are supported to develop a love of reading for life. They are encouraged to be independent problem solvers and are exposed to a wide range of programs, resources and technologies to foster natural curiosity.
The Discovery Centre houses an extensive book collection featuring Australian authors and illustrators as well as childhood classics. Students experience literature through many mediums from storytime and author talks to audiobooks and augmented reality resources and are encouraged to develop a healthy ‘reading diet’.
Students are given the opportunity to build their reading stamina and experience the joy of reading as often as possible, whilst learning to manage their borrowing, reservations and searches using both Windows and Apple devices.
Book Week is a highlight of the DC every year with students taking a deep dive into the shortlisted books and celebrating our shared love of wonderful literature. The DC is open every day at recess for students to borrow new books, ready quietly, play a game, do a puzzle or relax and recharge. It is also home to our very popular Chess Club each week!
