Please be advised regarding the following changes to Library Access.

If you have Library materials which will be due during the exam break… Please:

If you haven’t tried already, you can renew your books yourself (twice) through the new Library catalogue.

  • Login just as you would on any networked computer here at school
  • Follow this path: My Account > My Borrowing > Loan
  • Items will appear in order by due date
  • One item at a time, select the box beside the title you wish to renew.
  • Click on Renew.
  • You will be advised of the new due date.




Moratorium Starts Today!

Check out the ESA Library AW School Site for the Top Ten Study Tips and Tricks!

Know that reading is one of the best ways to reduce stress!

Just “six minutes can be enough to reduce stress levels by more than two-thirds”, so drop by the Library, pick up that book you’ve been wanting to read and have it on hand when you need a study break during the exam period.

Exam Schedules Available

Students are reminded that exams schedules are now available.  There are some changes to exam protocols this year, the two most important of which are:

  • You must arrive to the exam room 10 minutes prior to start time for attendance to be taken.
  • The Library will NOT be available as a Study Hall during the exam period.  Almost all of the Spec Ed exams are being written in the Library this year.

Additionally…  if you are in my HR you need to drop by and pick up your personalised exam schedule.  Only a few of you dropped by yesterday.
