The Mobile Area Resource Centre (MARC Van) is a small mobile library that visits our school every second week. The MARC Van is filled with picture story, fiction and non-fiction books for both students and teachers to borrow. The van visits 8 rural schools on the outskirts of Bendigo on a two week rotation.
Our students have a library lesson and afterwards are able to borrow books (Prep - 1 book, Grades 1 to 6 - 2 books) each fortnight. There is a return tub located in the project space for books that are finished early or otherwise books can come back to school on allocated MARC Van days.
The MARC Van service compliments and extends our current school library which is located in the main school building.
The current MARC Van teacher is Sue Gentry. Sue is passionate about books and enjoys organising our Bookweek activities every year.
