College Library

The Library holds a central place in the life of the College. Here students and teachers gather to share learning and the life of the College. Separate areas are provided for silent study or reading and an engaging book talk/literacy program, collaborative group work and computer work. There is an open area for conversation and relaxation and a separate room for VCE students, which comes with its own complete VCE reference collection. Teachers provide homework help after school while Maths and Humanities sessions are held each lunchtime. Library staff are on hand at all times to provide research advice and basic IT support. The IT staff are right next door if more technical support is required.

The Library boasts an extensive and up-to-date print fiction collection as well as e-books, audio books and a large database of educational videos, which may be viewed at school or from home. Guests are welcome to access the Library’s catalogue. Excellent subject and research guides are available online to link students and teachers to the best information websites and databases available. Photocopiers, paper guillotines, bookable secure display cases, iPads and laptops, and audiovisual equipment such as digital and video cameras, provide an impressive array of resources.

Careers Resource Centre

Kilbreda College offers a Career Development program that encourages and supports students to aim high and make informed decisions about their future career pathways.

Today's students are likely to change careers several times across multiples industries, therefore the skills required to manage such career development form the focus of the Careers program, with age and stage appropriate information and experiences available for all girls from Years 7 to 12.

By the time they graduate, all our students should have developed a strong sense of self, as well as the necessary skills to manage their career decisions and planning as adults.

The Kilbreda Careers Centre is located in the library and is open every day for students to browse course materials and employment information. Wherever possible, the Victorian Careers Curriculum Framework is used to direct activities and curriculum.
