The Library exists to provide a welcoming and protected environment conducive to both study and recreational reading. It is an educational and cultural environment where individuals are exposed to ideas through the use of print and non-print resources in many media formats.
The Library aims to reflect the school’s philosophy and to support the academic curriculum and pastoral care programme in the selection and dissemination of library resources. It provides adequate recreational resources for the users. In addition, it aims to teach students study skills so that they are adept at retrieving and using information, and emerge as fully independent learners.
