Library and E-Learning at The School:

 

Sierra Nevada Primary School officially opened the newly revamped library and resource centre on 01 December 2015.

The library is aimed at improving the lives of all learners at the school and those living in and around the community. The magic at the library can be fulfilled with or without teachers being present as our learners’ have a librarian present to assist at all times. The centre is open Monday-Saturday from 7am to 4pm. 

Learners’ have excess to more than 6000 books including reference books. The media centre also provides teachers and learners with teaching aids, a television and AstraLab Compujector. The advantage of having a centre as such at Sierra Nevada Primary School is that it aims at encouraging all learners to visit the library and form a love towards reading. The centre also creates different ways of teaching and supporting learners’ in all subjects.

Sierra Nevada Primary School offers learners’ the opportunity to learn to read through a fun new computer app called Reading Eggs. Reading Eggs makes learning to read interesting and engaging for kids, with great computer reading games and activities. Children are given the opportunity to read stories, complete spelling words and phonic sounds. These activities motivate children to keep exploring and learning to read and spell. This wonderful opportunity allows the children to feel proud of their reading.
