Library

Serviceton South State School has a beautiful new library built under the State Schools of Tomorrow Project. It houses collections of children’s literature, information books and teaching resources, and has a computer laboratory and a green room for film activities. An outdoor patio is also popular with students.

Every class in the school, including Prep, has a weekly lesson in the library and computer lab. During these lessons they listen to children’s literature and develop computer skills. Students in Prep are allowed to borrow one book for one week. Students in years 1 to 2 are allowed to borrow up to three books for one week, as long as they have a library bag. Students in years 3 to 6 are allowed to borrow up to four books for two weeks. If students lose or damage a book, they will be asked to pay $15 towards the purchase of a new book.

As well as hosting library lessons, the library hosts some German lessons in the computer lab. At lunch times students use the library for study and recreation, and participate in a chess club. School chess tournaments are held every term, and our best players also represent the school at interschool tournaments. In 2013 our top team came second in the South Brisbane division of the Premier League Chess Competition, and made it to the State Finals.
