Poynter Primary School has a well-resourced Library, with a school library officer who is employed for three days per week. All year levels participate in the library borrowing system and every class is timetabled into the Library once a week.
The Library officer runs a very successful Book Fair during the year, which supports the school’s ability to extend its reading resources. The P&C also supports the Library through targeted funding and the coordination of the Scholastic’s purchasing service.
A separate book selection for borrowing for the Lexile Program/Literacy Pro is provided.Children progress based on their comprehension levels of a text as part of their Literary Program.
