St Michael’s has a well-equipped Learning Hub, comprising of books and computers. Students are encouraged to borrow books each week. We ask that all students have a library bag to protect their books. Students also participate in formal library lessons once a week. The Hub is also used at lunchtimes for students to read, use computers and participate in our Coding Club.
Ashton Scholastic Book Club operates within the school, providing families with the opportunity to purchase books and encourage reading at home.
Students participate in the annual Premier’s Reading Challenge, encouraging them to read a wide variety of specially selected books. If students reach their target, they will receive a special certificate from the NSW Premier.
Each class has one library lesson each week, usually working on projects or activities related to a current unit of study whilst enhancing their research, report writing and library skills. The school also celebrates Book Week each year in a variety of ways.
