The Centenary Library


The Centenary Library, opening 23 April 2017, brings together seven Churchie departments (Senior School Library, Student Services, Churchie IT, Learning Support, Mawson House, Churchie Archives and a research centre). Operating like a tertiary-inspired library environment, the collation of key academic and pastoral services seeks to nurture aspects of Churchie’s four tenets, becoming the heart of school life at Churchie. 

The array of different learning spaces across the Centenary Library seeks to promote creative, flexible and effective approaches to thinking and learning. Students may undertake and partake in a range of activities and communities of learning that extend from an individual through to mixed classes and ages.

Features of the Centenary Library include:
  • 6 classrooms, 10 small group/study rooms, 2 covered outdoor learning environments, 2 video conference rooms, 4 meeting rooms
  • Over 80 individual/small group learning places
  • 250 seat lecture theatre
