Resource centre

Our old library was refurbished and extended in 2011 under the Federal Governments 'Building the Educational Revolution' program. The old building now houses the main entrance, the ICT room, media room, circulation area, workroom, teacher resource area and  TV corner, whilst the new extension houses the student collections and a teaching space with views out to the city.

Mission statement 

We aim for the Resource Centre to provide a well-resourced, inviting and inclusive environment, which effectively fosters the development of student information literacy skills and promotes a love of literature within students, empowering students to become life-long learners.  We also value computer literacy and the use of ICTs as integral to learning, therefore we believe that children’s learning is enhanced when digital technologies are integrated across the curriculum.  We also aim to support teachers' professional and curriculum needs through collection development and the management of relevant print and digital resources to align with the curriculum and unit contexts. 

Collection

The Sandgate State School Resource Centre houses a large collection of resources including Junior Fiction, Fiction, Non Fiction, Teacher Reference, Posters, Charts, Videos/DVD and some Computer Software.
