Library / STEM Centre
Our library is a meeting space where students can gather; a collaborative space where they can work together in small groups; a transparent space where learning in the school can be seen through the windows; a more barrier-free space in terms of student use; and an innovative space where the design that supports the units of inquiry that are happening across our school. A space where we sit around a “camp-fire” to listen to stories. Our traditional library has been transformed into an innovative library that encourages teachers and students to collaborate, communicate, and share.
Traditionally, the library was a silent place where you worked on your own doing silent work. The Rowville Primary School library is a 21st centre of active learning. It incorporates a combination of paper, books and technology to create a learning environment for our students. A STEM Centre is connected to our library. We want our students to interact with the content, the technology, the space, and each other in order to increase their knowledge and skills.
