We find ourselves in a unique time of challenge in our local and global context, with COVID-19 affecting many people in our world.

OUR LIBRARY DURING COVID-19
How can the library help you to keep your children reading?
Our current situation presents a great opportunity for some extra reading time as well as some challenges around accessing reading resources. It is so important to keep our children reading and Mater Dei is committed to supporting students to do exactly that.
We have utilised a few digital resources to provide students with access to reading materials and one of these is a 4 week trial of a school collection through Wheelers ePlatform. If this is of interest to you, please read the linked doc for how to utilise this opportunity – BORROWING DIGITAL BOOKS
We will also be providing a library style 'Click & Collect' system to enable students learning from home to still access the library print collection. Click here for more details – HOME ACCESS TO THE PRINT LIBRARY COLLECTION

Effective hand hygiene is vital
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, it is important to remember that effective hand and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best defence against viruses and can help prevent the spread of illness.
Lead by example and encourage your children to
- wash their hands regularly with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet
- use alcohol-based hand sanitiser if soap is not available
- cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of their elbow
- dispose of tissues in the bin immediately
- if they’re unwell, stay at home and avoid contact with others such as touching, kissing or hugging.
Check out the 20 second routine video for effective handwashing.
