Bunbury Catholic College has now joined schools throughout the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, who have transformed their school libraries into Learning Commons.
The Ursula Frayne (Mercy) and Marcellin Champagnat (Marist) Learning Commons are light and bright, able to be adapted at any time for a range of needs, with furniture which is attractive, comfortable, flexible and mobile. They provide a welcoming learning space for formal and informal classes, groups and individuals, with resources, services and facilities; and as a venue for social and community interaction.
Students and staff share the education journey in a space which encompasses the 21st century culture of learning – where we can collaborate, communicate, inquire, question, reflect, inspire, create and imagine.
The “Commons” concept embraces emerging technologies, and continues to promote literature to encourage a reading habit for literacy development and enjoyment.
Our students and staff love it!
