Part of what makes an education at ECiM one that enriches pupils is our syllabus which encourages pupils to learn independently. Apart from helping them develop a better understanding of academic subjects, it also forms the foundation for lifelong learning. All pupils entering ECiM will be given a formal induction to the Library and issued with library membership.
For Senior School pupils, the library hones information gathering skills. Teachers work to encourage this attitude of self-learning with regular visits to the Library, where they can guide their pupils on reading materials relevant to the subject. They will then be given the opportunity to put their newfound knowledge and skills to the test in the form of projects and homework.
Apart from academic subjects, pupils are encouraged to discover the Library on their own through its wonderful range of fiction, a section that gives pupils a chance to explore their imagination. By offering titles that cater to all tastes and interests, we wish to impart the joy of getting lost in a good book.
For pupils who are keen, the Library offers the opportunity to volunteer and serve as librarians.
The Library is organised into areas that serve these different functions:
- A quiet and private environment which is conducive to self-study
- A cluster of networked computers, with Wi-Fi accessibility for those with laptops
- An extensive range of fiction and non-fiction
- An assortment of local and international magazines and newspapers
- Higher Education information
