To reflect the dynamic nature and changing scope of libraries, we use the term 'Information Services Centre' or ISC at Faith Lutheran College, Redlands. This encourages our community to view the physical spaces, not as storage places for books, but as vibrant learning centres.
Our ISC hosts the Chess club, Books and BBQ nights, author visits and many other exciting activities.
The Junior School ISC is open every school day from 8am to 3.30pm.
Students from Prep to Year 4 have dedicated ISC lessons with a specialist teacher. Students in upper Primary, years 5 and 6, have ISC lessons with their classroom teacher. In these lessons students are shown skills in using the ISC effectively, how to research and become Information Literate.
We teach our students how to locate, select and use information in a productive, discerning and ethical way. Students are encouraged to bring in their Library bags to each ISC lesson where they can spend time selecting books for research or to enjoy at home.
In our ISC we are committed to:-
· Developing a comprehensive and pervasive Information Literacy program to assist our students to become confident life-long learners.
· Continuing to provide an excellent and diverse collection of information sources that will meet the needs of the 21st century student.
· Provide a comprehensive, enriching and engaging collection of fiction and nonfiction resources
· Provide eLearning support to our students and teaching staff
The ISC is also available for parents to loan resources from our dedicated Parent Library. Our Support Learning team and College counsellors have specifically chosen resources to aid families in raising happy, confident children.
