Inquiry Learning

Craigburn has developed a two-year cycle of inquiry based integrated curriculum units.
 
The inquiry learning process involves students posing questions, researching, thinking critically to solve problems, and create new understandings. This builds self-responsible learners.
 
Teachers collaboratively plan units of Inquiry within the framework of the Australian Curriculum.
 
 
 
 
 

Learning Community

 

Resource Centre

Our Resource Centre plays a vital and continuing role in your child’s education. Not only does it provide curriculum materials but, in conjunction with the Teacher Librarian, it supports and encourages students to become competent and confident readers. It also promotes independent, efficient and effective use of both print and electronic forms of information.

Parents are encouraged to visit the Resource Centre and be involved in their child’s reading requirements. Children can borrow as frequently as they wish - with a limit of four items for Reception to Year 2 students and six items for Years 3 to 7 students. Items can be kept for a fortnight and may be re-borrowed if necessary.

The Resource Centre is open between 8.30 am and 3.30pm and during the second half of the lunch break.


The Resource Centre uses the Amlib automated system. Students can access the Amlib on-line catalogue from any computer on the curriculum network. There are also 8 computers connected to the curriculum network which can be used for individual research and lunch time activities. 

Students are encouraged to be responsible for items in their care and lost or damaged articles need to be paid for or replaced.

Any offers of parent help in the Resource Centre are warmly received. Help is always welcomed with the reshelving of the many items returned each day and covering of books purchased.
