Library

Our Blake Library is an excellent centre for investigation and research. Blake was chosen as the name of the library to commemorate the first Catholic family in the Kenthurst area.


It was in their home that the first Mass in the district was celebrated. They were also the original owners of the land on which the school and parish buildings now stand.

With an extensive collection of quality children’s literature available to read and borrow, it is a popular venue with the students. The Premier’s Reading Challenge is an annual challenge that is publicised through the Blake Library to encourage a love of reading in all children.

Once a week every class has the opportunity to borrow books during the Library session. After they return their previously borrowed books they may borrow some new books to take home. The children must have a library bag (to safely transport the books to and from school).

We'd love a chance to show you how learning works for young people in our school. Our dedicated teachers plan the learning in detail to help each student do their best.
