An integral and important part of the School's educational programme, the Forrest Library caters for boys' recreational and curriculum needs. It is an exciting space offering boys a wide range of learning environments - formal and informal; inside or outside; among peers or a quiet corner alone.
Teacher librarians design learning strategies that meet the needs of individual students and fully integrate information literacy outcomes into the curriculum. Boys are encouraged and supported in the use of adolescent and adult literature, recreational reading and information resources in print and electronic formats. From home, students use the web-based catalogue to select and reserve library resources and have access to a wide range of online encyclopaedias, databases and digital video.
The annual Author in Residence programme provides our boys with the opportunity to meet and work with highly acclaimed adolescent authors and illustrators. This has seen cartoonists, novelists, poets and graphic novelists all sharing their expertise with our students.
