It was great to catch up with so many of you when you visited the library during camp. We hope you enjoyed the opportunity to meet the staff as well as get the chance to choose your own resources and see what else is available when you make your requests eg on Assembly.


Term 2 resources

The term 2 resources requested by teachers have been sent out to students. Some will have arrived and others will be coming out during the term as topics etc are finalised.

Red Bags

Thank you to the families who have returned resources to Marden they have finished with in the red bags. Please turn the red card around so the Reply Paid option is showing and use the cable tie in the front plastic pocket to secure the bag as it travels around with Australia Post etc.

We are also organising green cards to be used with the bags. The green cards can be used to send resources back to Port Augusta.


Library resources are also available via the OAC website.

As well as the resources we send out there are other resources available via the OAC website under the library link at Please let us know if you would like more information about using these resources. We will also be coming on to lessons etc to work with students to use them too.
