Week 3 Spring Term

Senior Library Closure

From Wednesday 24th October to Monday 19th November inclusive, the Senior Library will be closed for the Year 12 WACE exams. This means you will not have access to the library or its physical resources during this time. Year 12 students will still be able to study for their exams in the study room downstairs, which will only be accessible via the external doors.


1Degree will be working from the Tech Centre if you need IT help and the library staff will be based in room 9.121 (Maths building, opposite the staff room) if you have to return items or need assistance. As always, you can email any queries to
