What are the Homework/Study clubs and how do I apply to join?

This service is a wonderful opportunity for students to work on their homework or assessment tasks in a supervised and collaborative environment. Students are required to sign an attendance record when they commence their study and on completion. They are encouraged to use their time effectively and access available staff to assist them with time management skills and developing successful study habits.

The following procedures are in place to join and participate in the Homework/Study clubs:

Students collect a permission slip from the SEAC (Student Enrichment and Advancement Centre) office, or download from following link:
Francis and Clare Study Parent Letter (PDF to be added)

Each year the above form must be completed and returned to the SEAC and the girl’s name is added to the Clare and Francis Study roll.

If a student is unable to attend one of her nominated days, we ask that the school is notified. Any permanent changes to nominated days will require another form to be completed.

Any session that a student attends requires her to sign in when commencing and sign out when leaving.

Who can borrow and what am I allowed to borrow?

Who can borrow?
Borrowing of resources is available to all members of the Mount Alvernia community to support their teaching, learning and recreational needs.

Available resources
The iCentre offers a variety of resources and formats, including books, DVDs, magazines and multimedia devices such as iPads, and iPod touches. Students also have the opportunity to borrow eBooks and audiobooks should they so wish. We also have a number of non-fiction eBooks in our collection to assist student research which can be accessed via the OPAC.

Loan periods
Generally, items are available on a fourteen day cycle, except for equipment where the loan period may vary.

Returns
Borrowers are asked to consider others when borrowing and using resources, and take responsibility for returning them at the appropriate time so they are readily available for other members of our community. Failure to do so causes great inconvenience.

How can I give my daughter permission to borrow Senior Fiction?

A parental note in your student planner is required. iCentre staff record this on your borrowing profile.

Where can I get information on cybersafety?

We have a number of resources under the Digital Citizenship on this website.
