Reading is included in all of our homework. Students should be reading at least 20 minutes everyday. To help with this we have teamed up with Scholastic to provide online reading resources. This is called Literacy Pro. 

Students can access these literacy pro resources through the link below

Literacy Pro

Library lessons are a vital component of the school's educational program. Our modern, state of the art library building houses a variety of high quality fiction, nonfiction and reference resources.

The library has ten computers linked to the school computer network. It has two enquiry terminals and a TV with DVD and VCR capability.

Connected classrooms

The library also doubles as a functioning connected classroom. It contains an interactive whiteboard, video conferencing facilities and lesson creation and data collaboration software.

The connected classroom enhances opportunities for collaboration between students, teachers and schools across the state. It is providing staff and students at Caringbah Public School with new opportunities for collaborative learning. Using state of the art technology staff and students are gaining opportunities to obtain, create, collaborate and share knowledge in new ways.

The connected classroom allows schools to participate in virtual excursions to places such as NASA facilities, Questacon and Taronga Zoo. Students are able to ask the questions that matter to them and to see hundreds of other students across the state engaging in similar dialogue. The video conferencing facility enables students to interact with experts from universities and industry, for instance students can view presentations being shared on the interactive whiteboard and at the same time ask questions via the video conferencing equipment.


All classes have access to the library with weekly lessons where students are able to browse, borrow and return books.
Some classes engage in team teaching activities with the teacher librarian, enabling research and computer skills to be integrated into key learning areas. This enhances student's learning outcomes and promotes quality teaching.

The library is open during most lunch times to allow students from Kindergarten to Year 6 to read, borrow and return books. Students at this time are also able to engage in social activities such as chess, board games and drawing. The doors to the computer lab are opened during this time with senior students utilising this time to undertake further research or work on class assignments.
