A warm welcome back to our school community and a special welcome to our Year 7 students.

Students are encouraged to make use of this quiet space for study, to seek teacher assistance and access all of the Library resources.

Digital Resources

A reminder to all students and their families that the Library has a range of excellent reliable resources available online 24/7.  Students are encouraged to access the new Library system – Oliver via the DoE Student Portaland conduct a Federated Search to access a range of online resources provided by the Department of Education (DoE) and Engadine High School.

EHS Library subscribes to LinksPlus – Weblinks Online. Using Federated Search on Oliver students have access to over 15,000 websites that have been evaluated by teachers and teacher-librarians. Students are encouraged to use these reliable websites.

Information Processing Skills Lessons

As part of the English Program all Year 7 students have one Library based lesson per cycle. The students are explicitly taught how to locate and select resources both in our physical library and beyond including all the digital resources mentioned above. Students from Years 8-12 also have research based lessons in the Library within a number of subject areas.

We look forward to continuing to provide an inclusive, dynamic, information rich learning environment that supports the learning needs of our students.
