Highgate has had a long and proud tradition of actively inspiring children via literature and the library.
The library is one of the major hubs of the school with all students and staff enjoying time spent in the library.
Students can borrow two books to take home for a week’s loan. All students must have a material bag of a suitable size to be able to borrow books – first rule in the library; No bag = No books.
During the term holidays, the students can borrow up to five books with their parent’s or guardian’s permission.
The library is open at lunchtime on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. During this time the students can read books, play board games or use the computers to enhance their skills in Mathematics and Reading on selected computer programs.
The library is also open Tuesday to Thursday from 8:30 in the morning. Students are welcome to exchange books in this time.
The library showcases displays on current events happening in the school and often student’s art work is displayed for all students and staff to admire.
