The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is centrally located and is the heart and hub of the school. The facility offers a welcoming, comfortable space for students to learn, share and read in great company with other students and with the encouragement of dedicated staff who are passionate about learning. We are open before school, at recess and lunchtime. Students have access to computers, photocopiers, printers, books and multimedia resources.
The learning focus in the Learning Resource Centre is Information Literacy and Reading. Year 7 and 8 students attend the Information Literacy and Reading Program once a fortnight with their class and are inspired to read and to participate in the Premiers’ Reading Challenge.
We encourage all students to be critical thinkers and to develop their literacy, inquiry and technology skills. We empower students to pursue academic scholarship, interests and passions through books, media and the digital environment. We assist students to be independent and self-directed learners.
Exciting co-curricula programs, such as the Teen Library Advisor Program, the Readers’ Cup Competition, Author Visits, Writing Programs including NanoWrimo, offer students the opportunity to extend their leadership potential, to develop and showcase their literary talents. These and many other competitions and fun-filled events are on offer throughout the year to students of all Houses and year levels.
As well as access to an extensive book collection, the school pays for students and their families to have exclusive access to scholarly databases and fantastic digital resources including: the Dandenong High School eBook Lending Service, World Book Online, Newsbank, Ziptales and ClickView Online.
