At Cavendish Road SHS, the iCentre is a fundamental
part of the teaching and learning process. The iCentre has two main
roles, to promote reading for pleasure and to support teachers and students
with research-based learning across the curriculum.
iCentre Mission Statement
The Cavendish Road SHS iCentre engages with our
community, training capable researchers, critical thinkers, enthusiastic
readers, and ethical participants in the contemporary information landscape by
providing quality resources for both academic and personal endeavours and by
collaborating with faculty members to enhance instruction.
Dedicated staff in the iCentre help students develop
their capacity to locate, evaluate, and apply information. Classes frequently
visit the iCentre to conduct research or seek out materials for
pleasure reading. Students also use the library for individual and group study.
The iCentre’s mission is to train excellent student researchers, provide
high-quality library services, and develop collections that support academics
and independent reading.
The iCentre is popular with students who enjoy its
facilities. We provide an inclusive and supportive environment for students to
learn, explore, communicate, interact and relax. Our iCentre contains a
number of flexible learning spaces and facilities.
The iCentre has a comprehensive collection of over
10,000 up-to-date print resources. Access to these resources is provided
through a fully automated library management system (Infiniti) comprising the
library catalogue, which can be accessed by every student. Students can access
the library catalogue and the EQ eBook collection online 24 hours a day. Though
we have a 3-week borrowing period, loan conditions are flexible with students
being able to borrow a greater number of resources concurrently as they move
through the grades.
The iCentre is available to students for personal
and group study during all opening hours. As the iCentre is a shared
space we ask that all users conduct themselves in a manner that does not impact
on other patrons. Use may be restricted on some days due to hosting school
events. Hours may vary upon availability
