Overview

The library is the hub of the school that aims to enrich the lives and teaching and learning experience for all students. We are a busy, dynamic and inclusive place that is responsive and reactive to the needs of the school community.

The space itself is a very attractive and welcoming one with an emphasis on creating a calm and aesthetically pleasing environment. A multitude of plants, creative and visually appealing displays with clearly designated areas for games, reading and study make our library a very warm and pleasant place to be.

Modern and contemporary

The library is modern and contemporary 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. We offer a range of books that seeks to reflect the rich cultural and gender diversity of our student and staff.

Strong reading culture

With a focus on fostering literacy across the school, we have an amazing fiction and non-fiction collection that supports an immensely strong reading culture. The number of students who consistently read for education and leisure at Carine is extraordinarily high.

We welcome student and staff recommendations for new books and make use of numerous book suppliers seeking to constantly update and broaden our collection.
