Great School Libraries
Congratulations to the 22 South Australian school libraries that were selected for the Honours list of the Great School Libraries campaign!
These libraries met the criteria for a 'Great School Library' by the valuable contribution they make to their school's teaching and learning program in the areas of reading, digital literacy, critical thinking and research skills.
The full list of Australian schools as well as case studies of best practice can be found on the Great School Libraries website. By following the links on the website you will also find some interesting school library statistics and a new report showing the impact of teacher librarians on student outcomes.
It is intended that the campaign will run again in 2016 and we hope that more school libraries will be involved in promoting the great work that you do to support student learning.
