We enjoyed a very informative session from the IT and Library staff this week at the PET. Everyone is welcome to these, so please look ahead for topics! They presented their vision for transforming our library learning and media spaces to be far more interactive and forward thinking. Shortly, there will be an interactive design space in the Primary School library, in addition to a newly existing film and recording studio space in the old music room (on the basement level of the Secondary School).
Please see Miss Pam's message below:
Imagine a space where your child could go to design, create and innovate. A space where resources are readily available and support from other students, teachers, and community experts is at their fingertips. A space where a project doesn't need to be tidied away because their time is up but can be kept and built upon next time. Well, imagine no more! At PSI we are in the process of setting up a makerspace for all students from EC - G12. It will be located in P204, the room next to the primary school library and it will be available for students to use during recess times, after school, during some library periods and increasingly during class time with links to their units.
As we begin to build up our collection of resources, we are looking for some community help. If you have any sets of lego, old electronics, tools, craft materials, cardboard boxes or really anything else that can be used to create and build, which you no longer have any need for, please consider donating them to our makerspace. Any donations can be brought to the Primary School library. Thank you for your support.
