LIBRARY AT A GLANCE
Starting with a classroom-sized library, the library has grown to be one of the focal points for learning for the school community. In 2016, the library moved to the East Building and has expanded the capacity to accommodate up to 64 students and staff at a time.
The facility comprises over 13,000 books, access to thousands of online journal articles and reference sources and other learning materials such as CD/DVD, educational games, etc. that are available to students and staff. The facilities available such as Silent Study Zone, Media Zone and many more spaces for different needs for the staff and students.
Whilst providing areas for different needs, the library also houses programmes/events in school to make literacy and reading fun for the school community. Adapting to the new normal, more library activities are available virtually to create a fun and exciting learning environment.
Conducive study areas are provided for all SIS staff and students to facilitate learning in the school as well as to encourage active learning experiences. Academic staff can also receive assistance for course reading materials for students in either print or electronic formats.
