Library

Research and study centre

The Nirimba Senior College Library (NSCL) is at the heart of teaching and learning at Wyndham College. It is a shared facility with St John Paul II Catholic College and provides a place of enrichment for both of the school communites.

The library features advanced digital technologies including plasma television screens, desktop computers, laptops and large interactive touch screen panels.

Wyndham is a reading community and the library provides a wonderfully-varied collection of fiction and literature that stimulates students to read widely. 

The fiction and extensive non-fiction collections are complemented by a technology-rich environment that provides access to sophisticated databases and online resources.

Staff members work hard to equip the students with advanced information skills so that they will become lifelong learners. The library is the busy hub of school life. And even when the lights are turned out the libraries are still working, providing on-line material to the school community through remote access to the library catalogue.

Opening hours:

  • Monday to Thursday: 7:45am - 3:15pm
  • Friday: 7:45am - 2:15pm.
