​​Learning Commons at the CBE

Today’s learners cannot imagine life without the internet and supporting technology. The concept of the traditional library is changing to include technology, online tools and spaces for collaboration and exploration.​​​

Learning Commons / Library

We recognize that every student is an individual with his or her particular learning style. The goal of our resource program is to address the exceptional educational needs of our students using a team problem solving approach. At Branton, our resource group provides assessment and follow­-up in both English and French, as time permits. The Resource Teacher may work with a student in his/her regular class, individually or as part of a small group of students sharing the same educational concern. We believe very strongly in a consultative approach, seeking input from all those involved in analyzing student learning profiles and developing subsequent educational strategies. 

Homework Help in Room 19

Room 19 is open to all students.

  • Monday to Thursday 8:00 am – 4:00 pm 
  • Fridays 1:30 – 3:00 pm

Students are welcome to use the library and media center for research, study, and leisure reading but not to play video games on school computers. Classes are booked by their teachers for research projects. Individual research and book exchange is encouraged if space permits. The French and English resources are integrated. The computers are available for research purposes and word processing. We have a wide variety of French and English tech tools as well as Internet access. 

We have a Library Pages Club that we encourage students to join. Pages help in the library for 40 minutes per week, shelving books, processing magazines and books, working at the circulation desk, and keeping order in the library. Parents are welcome to volunteer during school hours. 


The school Library is also open before school hours and at lunch with teacher supervision for students to engage in school work.
