Hillcross Primary School
Welcome to the Hillcross Primary School Library Web Page.
We are extremely lucky at Hillcross to have such a wonderful library for all students and staff to use.
Our library is Jungle themed and the children love visiting to have a quiet read or to take out books to enjoy at home.
When classes are not visiting the library, it is also used as a learning hub and the children benefit from a calm and engaging environment to learn in.
We have five new parent volunteers who help us to keep our library running smoothly, as well as three staff members who oversee the day to day operation (see below).
Our school library prefects are Kaci, Poppi and Chloe who also help to keep the library a wonderful place to enjoy.
Each class all the way from Nursery up to Year 6 has the opportunity to visit the library once a week.
Reception to Year 6 are able to take out a book each for up to 2 weeks at a time.
Reading for pleasure is fundamental to Hillcross Primary School and we offer a vast range of books for all ages including fiction and non-fiction books, newspapers, comics and topic related reference books.
The librarians are on hand most days to answer any queries the children may have and to help with the scanning in and out of books, to allow the class teacher quality time with their class.
We host a Scholastic Book Fair annually where books are showcased and can be purchased and have termly book swap events in the school hall where you can bring in a book or two to swap for a new one.
These events are extremely popular.
