Library

The goal of the Flagstone State School Resource Centre is to enable our students to develop information skills and literary appreciations that will assist them to become informed decision makers and life long learners.

The Resource Centre consists of a library, computer laboratory and 2 conference rooms as well as a teachers’ resource room.

The library is vital to the learning environment of the children and teachers, motivating and supporting independent learning and resource based teaching,

providing equitable access to resources and encouraging an appreciation of literature.
