“Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.” Laura Bush


Students increase their understanding that using technology resources safely and ethically is an important principle of stewardship by Christians. Students build on the concept of digital literacy with a focus on further developing their knowledge and skills of safe internet usage. Students explore the issues of online privacy, passwords, online etiquette and cyber bullying. They continue to build on their research skills using the library’s catalogue and online resources. This subject aims to encourage students to use literature to explore and understand the world God has placed us in and to develop their interest and skills in inquiring into the aesthetic aspects of texts and develop an informed appreciation of literature.
