As a Halton school library, we strive to:
Promote reading and life long learning
Provide technical and administrative support and training to school staff
Support and engage students and staff in meeting the expectations and objectives of the Ontario curriculum
Maintain a current and broad collection of library resources for students and staff
Ensure the ethical use of information resources
Embrace, adapt to and adopt 21st century technologies in school libraries
Create an awareness of, and where possible, access to, information resources beyond school library collections
Advocate for and promote library services
Create and maintain library facilities that are organized and engaging with a focus to encourage collaboration and learning
At John T Tuck, we aim to achieve these goals by providing a comfortable and engaging learning environment that motivates and encourages our students to become life long leaners. By providing equitable materials and instruction that allow for all students to achieve success, and working collaboratively with staff to design strategies to meet the individual needs of students, we are confident that our students will develop a love for reading and learning.
