The Solais - Inspired Learning

The Solais houses the library and the ICT. It is a warm and welcoming place for students to come from 8.00am to 8.30pm (closes 4pm on Fridays) to study, borrow books, read, relax, have tutoring and receive assistance in using databases, developing study skills and using digital technologies. There are qualified teacher librarians who run a reading program every fortnight for students from Years 7-10 and are available in class and after school until 8.30pm to assist with all learning needs. The Solais staff endeavour to provide reading materials and learning resources to meet each student's skill level. This ranges from books written for students with dyslexia, Kindles that can read aloud to students, graphic novels, audio books, eBooks and videos from Clickview, as well as educational databases such as Encyclopedia Britannica.
