CTHS Library is innovative and modern, going beyond the traditional “books for borrowing”. In addition to extensive fiction and non-fiction collections, we provide staff and students with a number of other services and facilities.
We collaborate closely with CTHS teachers across KLAs to develop and run relevant and engaging lessons and programs based on sound pedagogy and drawing from the Quality Teaching Framework. We aim to embed information literacy skills within the curriculum and extend students’ use of technology.
If you are interested in working with a CTHS Teacher-Librarian please contact Amber Sorensen or Coni Halder or email:
