Library

BPS Library

A weekly library program incorporating the teaching of Information Skills operates with each class in co-ordination with the class teacher and class program.

The school library is open for student borrowing daily.  All parents are urged to take an active interest in their child's leisure reading and to encourage the use of our library facilities.

The library is available to students, at the following times, for reading, writing, playing board games, completing jigsaws and computer activities:

  • Monday – 2nd half lunch
  • Tuesday – 2nd half lunch
  • Wednesday – 2nd half lunch
  • Thursday – 2nd half recess
  • Friday – 2nd half recess

K - 2 Students are able to borrow 2 books for a period of 2 weeks.  3 - 6 Students are able to borrow 3 books for a period of 2 weeks.  Individual borrowing records are on display in the library and are updated each term. 

If a school library book is lost or damaged, please forward a written explanation to the librarian.  Once a written explanation is received students will be able to continue borrowing from the library.  If a lost book is not found within 3 months, costs to cover a replacement book will be requested.

Bookfairs

Each term students are given the opportunity to purchase books at a school book fair. Well selected titles are offered at reasonable prices details are sent home. The school library receives bonus dividends from these book fairs that are redeemed for books and resources for use in the school. The school library purchases some of the books so they will be available to all children.
