​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

Our Learning Commons provides opportunities for students to purposefully create, inquire and explore through various sources. It is a place where technology is available to help capture the imagination of students and provide them with access to knowledge beyond the walls of the school. Our vision is to continue to develop this centre as an open and inviting place with well stocked bookshelves and inviting open spaces, which promote a desire to investigate and inquire about the world around us. As the core-learning hub within the school, the Learning Commons has been designed to allow for multiple functions and to provide exhibition spaces for work created or inspired by students.

Library books are loaned to all students for a one-week period. Students have a weekly book exchange time with their class. The children must return a book, before a new one can be signed out. They are allowed to sign out two at a time. 

  • There will be a replacement fee for lost or damaged books.
  • All books need to be transported to and from school in a backpack, ideally inside a plastic bag in case of leaky water bottles.
  • Your help to remind your child to bring their books back each week will be of great assistance and cause less disappointment.

Thank you to those families who came out to the grade 1 celebration of learning today. They have been learning all about cause and effect by designing Rube Goldberg machines. They are then transferring their learning to what cause and effect looks like in an ecosystem.

Learning the science of wetlands and ecosystems today through drama. Thanks to @Evergreen_Th for inspiring our thinking and your creative story telling. https://t.co/vIasS9Wo8I
