Readers are Leaders

Head of Libraries – Andrew Stark

This week, we began welcoming Year 7 boys to the Senior Library for their orientation session. There is a lot to remember in the early days of senior school but each class is being introduced to the different library spaces, the library webpage, and the fiction collection. We look forward to welcoming more new boys in coming weeks.

 

Another quick reminder that the Senior Library subscribes to some excellent online databases and resources which are available to all members of TSS Community. These are available via the Library Homepage (Student Portal – LibGuides Blue Cloud) and provide excellent academic support for all subjects taught at TSS.

 

We also subscribe to the ELES Study Skills website www.studyskillshandbook.com.au  . This website provides students with essential skills for academic success with units of work on improving time management skills, how to study, research skills, summarizing, technology use, brain and memory and much more. Everything our boys need to know about becoming more powerful learners can be found on this site. 

The website includes a variety of very useful handouts, grids and planners to assist, students, teachers and parents. To access the handbook, go to www.studyskillshandbook.com.au and login with:
