The CSC Library is a welcoming, flexible, well-resourced and supportive environment where the school community can work, relax and reflect. A place where students and staff can pursue academic goals, enjoy the pleasure of reading, and connect on a social level. Learning spaces have been created to cater for the varied needs of the school, with two classroom spaces, a reading area with comfortable seating, a tutorial room, and the Senior Study room.

The Library also provides access to a wide variety of print and electronic resources to accommodate the diverse needs of students and staff. These include online databases and other digital resources, a specialized non-fiction print collection, recreational reading material in a range of formats and resources to support staff professional learning.

In an increasingly information-rich world, it is essential that students learn how to effectively identify, access, evaluate, organise and communicate information. At CSC the Library staff introduce students to these skills as part of the Library Orientation program, as well as providing support for the explicit teaching of research skills within the classroom.

Literary experiences are a core component of the Library and many activities celebrating reading and writing are a feature of the annual calendar. These include:

  • Book Clubs
  • Writing workshops
  • Literature Enrichment program
  • CSC Reading Challenge
  • CSC Writer’s Prize
