"At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to enter a library, we change their lives forever, for the better." ~Barack Obama
Here at St Patrick's, we firmly believe in this statement from Barack Obama. We believe that reading is integral to student success at school and that providing students with opportunities to enjoy reading will enable them to enhance their reading and writing, but also allow them the opportunity to use their imagination.
We are very lucky at St Patrick's to have a computer lab with 30 computers attached to the library as well as a beautiful library with a very comprehensive fiction and non fiction collection. Each year, we host a book parade and book fair in book week. Students also have access to purchase books from book club. Lunchtimes in the library are also lots of fun with plenty of puppets, puppet theatres, board games and art and craft activities available.
