The library supports the educational program providing access to a range of instructional and recreational materials.
Campsie Public School has a large library with an extensive range of resources. These include books, computer and interactive screens. Each class has regular access to the library, where they have the opportunity to borrow books, complete research tasks, learn about concepts of print and develop a love of reading and learning.
Students are provided with a yellow home reading bag each year. This bag is used for the students to bring home a new book to read each night. Books are selected from a class collection of various levelled reading books. Parents are encouraged to listen to their child read for 15 minutes every night.
At Campsie Public School we value reading. Reading is a skill that needs to be practised daily and those students who have been identified as not achieving Band 3 in NAPLAN, not participating in home reading programs and not borrowing from the school library, are strongly advised to attend reading club. Reading club operates from Tuesday to Friday 8:15 to 8:45 (before school), in the school library.
Qualified teachers will be there to listen to your child read aloud, at an appropriate reading level, and also students already achieving competent reading levels, then graduate to become reading tutors. Parents with their pre-schoolers are very welcome to accompany their child to reading club, as we believe that this partnership between home and school recognises the holistic nature of reading.
