Our beautifully refurbished Discovery Zone lies at the heart of the Upper Junior School and is a busy place of discovery and delight for all girls from Grade 0 to Upper IV. The elegant, compact, and user-friendly design allows for easy, multi-purpose use. The facilities are state-of-the-art, yet timeless, and much of the treasured traditional library has been retained. Library and IT facilities offer our pupils and teachers access to a modern, collaborative venue to meet the needs of a 21st Century education.
The promotion of abundant and quality reading material is critical to our thinking curriculum. Carefully designed shelving divides the library into a teaching zone, an informal reading area, with comfortable couches, and a computer area, and offers ample space for displaying popular or noteworthy titles. The best books are now but an arm’s reach away! Our non-fiction section houses a vibrant and relevant collection of information books. The St Margaret’s library is a haven of pictures and words, offering comfortable seating, beautiful displays, and the best in children’s literature.
The computer area consists of two learning spaces, separated by folding glass doors. The iPad section is a hive of activity, with girls engaged in learning, using the school’s iPads or their own devices. This provides a wonderful platform for collaboration, whilst researching or completing tasks. The other room is equipped with computers which are used for IT lessons or for other subjects where access to PCs is required. IPads are used in the computer room and, as the school has WI FI connectivity, in the classrooms and other learning spaces.
