Computer Laboratories

A modern network links all computers in the school. This network allows staff, students and administrators to access the Internet from their workstations. More recently, Wifi routers have been place all around the school, giving teachers, administrators and management continuous access to the internet while moving around the building.

Learning Resource Centre (LRC)

The LRC has more than 20,000 items in its collection, and has been designed to complement classroom instruction, through dedicated spaces such as an independent study and research area, a recreational reading place, and audio/visual theatre space, and comfortable space for student group meetings.

The library is continuously being streamlined and revamped with new materials, equipment and furniture. A more recent attempt in the library is to add to the existing active learning space by including a makerspace, which promotes hands-on experience of designing and building, including projects involving 3-D printing, robotics, electronic circuits, and the use of recycled raw materials.

The intent to launch a makerspace in the School library is to promote the library as central hub in the School for learning, research, innovation and training, and to begin integrating the use of 21st century technology in the process of teaching and learning.

The LRC is also open to the community on Saturdays, whereby the public can come and read or sign-out books.
