Students have library lessons on Wednesday. Children may borrow books but need to supply a library bag to protect books from damage. 


Students are able to bank through Student Banking with the Commonwealth Bank. Forms are available from the school office to be filled in and sent to the bank.  Once the bank account is established students can bring their money and deposit book on Tuesday.
