Our Mercy Library has recently been renovated and refurbished. It is a contemporary learning space that was purpose-built as a flexible learning area that opens out to Fatima Forum for outdoor learning. It provides a space for STEM activities including the use of Robotics (Spheros & Blubots), parent information sessions and staff professional development. Our library becomes a centre for passive lunchtime activities.
The children enjoy the Book Week activities each year that include visiting authors and a book character parade. The children also enjoy weekly library lessons and book borrowing as well as taking part in the Premier’s Reading Challenge.
