Cammeray Public School

A safe and caring learning environment

Telephone02 9955 7200


The Cammeray school library is open every morning 8:45am to 9:05am and Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday lunchtimes. Students are welcome to visit the library during these times to change their books, read, draw or play quiet games. 

Each week, classes participate in a lesson in the library. During which students change their books, discuss literature and are introduced to websites and apps that support learning. We encourage all children to bring their library bag to their library session.
