Understanding that the school library plays an integral role in the learning journey of our students, the ES and MHS libraries are both consistently looking for new innovative ways to stay up to date and to continue to meet the needs of our highly able learners.
We understand that our library resources have an inevitably substantial impact on the students educational achievement as well as their social and emotional wellbeing.
Here is a glimpse of some of the many resources provided at our libraries
The Elementary School Library is a place for inquiry and learning to support our Primary Years Programme. The PYP library provides resources to support the units of inquiry and independent reading. All students are encouraged to follow their individual interests and passions in book selection.
The PYP librarian supports the units of inquiry with weekly lessons related to the grade levels unit of inquiry, reinforcing concepts and the Approaches to Learning (ATLs). The ATLs include thinking, research, communication, social as well as self management skills. The library is also a place to explore and reinforce our PYP learner profile, becoming caring, inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, risk-takers, balanced and reflective individuals.
The MHS library was also carefully tailored to cater to the needs of all CAC community members. This includes students, staff and parents as well. Wall colors, seating arrangements, book placements and the overall library layout are all designed in a specific way to induce a love for reading, studying and learning, and to promote collaborative as well as individual study.
Moreover, the MHS library hosts several community organizations / groups including: Silent Sustained Reading for MS, Extended Essays for IB students, BOB (Battle of the Books) as well as numerous parent book clubs. Our libraries are open to all community members, encouraging everyone to continue to experience exceptional education in a diverse and caring community.
