ACADEMIC INFRASTRUCTURE

LIBRARY

The three well-stocked school libraries are age-appropriate reservoirs of resources for the Primary Years Programmes (Nursery to Grade 5), Middle School (Grades 6 to 8) and Senior School segment (Grades 9 to 12). Each have intranet-based Wi-Fi facilities and are inviting quiet zones for resource work, reflection and reading.

Reading is a very important part of education and we encourage members to make the best use of our libraries and library services.

TIMINGS:

The Libraries not only share timings with the rest of the school, but also remain open till 3:00 pm to facilitate its use by the Boarders.

LIBRARY PROGRAMMES & EVENTS:

Each year we celebrate ‘International School Library Day’, ‘Library Week’ and ‘World Book Day’ along with various Authors’ birthdays to create awareness and generate a love for reading. Every month we organise programmes such as Story Telling, Book Talks, Creation of Big Books and the creation of theme-based scrapbooks on Units of Enquiry.

USAGE:

In case the borrowed book is lost or damaged while in the possession of a member, the member is required to replace the latest edition of the same book.

Expected Behaviour:

Members are expected to take care of the library and its resources in the following ways:

  • Do not remove any page or pages from print resources or damage electronic resources.
  • Do not make any pen or pencil marks in any of the books.
  • Do not re-stack a book in the wrong section, making it difficult for others to locate it.
  • Maintain silence inside the library.
  • Finally, when leaving the School, members must return all resources, clear dues, if any, and collect a No Dues Certificate from the library.
