Library

CEDP school libraries are physical and digital places of inquiry and reading.


They provide access to a range of resources that help kids on their Learning journey and help inspire purposeful learning.

Through access to our library resources and services, students develop a range of learner dispositions and capabilities to cultivate a culture of curiosity, creativity, imagination and innovation.



General Learning Resource Centre

The St Aidan’s school library is an important aspect of school life and learning. The students access the library not only to borrow books, but to further develop their information skills.

These skills include areas such as researching, note taking and using technology. Technology is used not only to access information, but also to publish work.

All students visit the library weekly to borrow books. Students require a library bag in order to protect their borrowed books. Kindergarten to Year Two students are able to borrow one book each week, Years Three and Four are able to borrow two books, and Years Five and Six may borrow three books. Students are able to borrow the books for two weeks before returning them.

Book Week is a key event at St Aidan’s. Each year a theme is selected by the Book Council of Australia. Many activities are planned around the theme and are designed to encourage a love of literacy.
