Library and learning resources

In our library we promote a love of reading and the development of literacy. All students are encouraged to borrow regularly.

An important part of our library is the Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC). All students from Year 1 to Year 6 are encouraged to participate in this event. Kindergarten students may also take part if they wish. Our PRC books are colour coded and shelved at the front of the library making it easy to locate the appropriate books.

For more information about the Premiers Reading Challenge, please visit the PRC website.

The lexile reading program

A new program has been introduced to Tharawal's school library known as 'The NSW lexile reading program'. This program is for students in Years 3 to 6 to motivate and inspire them to read. All students have been given a lexile level, which will help them find books appropriate for their reading level and interests. Access it from home by visiting the lexile learning zone website.
