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 schools. The library features advanced digital technologies including 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 extensive non-fiction collection is 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.
Nirimba Senior College Library is taking several actions to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff and students in response to the Australian Government recommendations about COVID-19.
The Library will take measures to de-intensify the use of spaces by limiting the number of visitors to under 100 in the library, at any one time.
Students may be asked to delay your entry to the library.
We have increased cleaning schedules through the library.
There will be reduced numbers allowed in student Group Study Rooms.
Signs will be placed around the Library to remind students of protocols.
The Nirimba Library Precinct Agreement with WSU is currently suspended.
Library staff will be observing the social distancing recommendations and encourage all library visitors to do so to ensure their own health and to avoid putting others at risk. Please maintain the recommended social distancing space of 1.5m when interacting with a Library staff member or other students. Please maintain hand hygiene and cover your cough.
Western Sydney University Nirimba Library is also open Monday to Friday until 7pm. We encourage students to use WSU Library after school as this provides extended hours that are complimentary to our Library service at Wyndham College. Please see the Nirimba Precint map for the location of the WSU Library.
