Identification, Library and SmartRider Card

All students are issued with a new card in Year 7 and Year 11 as part of the school fees budget. Cards are printed plastic and should last for four school years if treated the same as any bank, credit or access card. Replacements due to loss, damage or defacement are to be paid for by the students at a cost of $5.00 (inc GST).   The card is now a multi-purpose identification card that includes a photo and various functions for cost-saving and safety. Inclusion of the birth-date enables students to use it as a proof of age at outside venues. Library loans and loans of texts from some learning areas are completed using the barcode.

Security

All students are required to have an ID card with their photo for identification and security, particularly when out in the school areas open to public access. With such a large school population, it is not possible for teachers to know everyone, so students may be asked to identify themselves to staff. The card will also be used for our student attendance system.

Library Loans

A resource is only lent to a student who has their identification card. Borrowing by a student for another student on their own card is not allowed, and if caught doing so, their borrowing rights will be suspended. Borrowers retain responsibility for damage or loss to library resources. This is a strict policy as parents are generally reluctant to pay for books lost by other people’s children.

Photocopying

If students wish to use the photocopier in the Library they must make payment to library staff. The photocopying function is activated by the swipe strip on the back. Money can be loaded on the card before school or at lunchtime, but not in class time. No cash copying is available, as the library does not have an electronic change box.
