Library & Research
Data capture, evaluation and concept dissemination are fundamental components of learning and permeate our inquiry-based philosophy and two logical arenas for such skills are the library and the meanigful use of ICT.
As technology makes information increasingly accessible, students are encouraged to explore different means of seeking and researching information, collecting data and reporting findings and ultimately developing and defending a position.
At Abercorn the concept of a library encompasses much more than just the room itself. With guidance the library becomes a place within which our students can focus and explore their own interests.
Students become masters at navigating available resources, both physical and electronic. They learn to evaluate, distill and then use information effectively, empowering them with the tools and knowledge necessary to succeed.
Throughout the school, enthusiasm for books and reading is encouraged and we take great pride in nurturing high-level literacy and reading skills, informing and challenging our students and motivating them to expand their reading experiences.
