Hub of the school

The library is the hub of the school. We aim to enrich the lives and teaching and learning experience for all students. We are a busy, dynamic and inclusive place and space that is responsive and reactive to the needs of the school community. Our library manager is also a teacher librarian, so all staff and students at Carine benefit from the expertise of an information and literature specialist.

Modern and contemporary

The library is currently in the process of modernization to respond to the needs of 21st century learners, and with a print and online collection of resources that underpins and supports the new curriculum, the library is the heart of the school.

Strong reading culture

With a focus on literacy, we have an amazing fiction collection and an immensely strong reading culture. We encourage and embrace student and community recommendations for collection development. The amount of students who read for education and leisure at Carine is extraordinary.
