Students vote with their feet, New GVIC School Library a resounding success


Green Valley Islamic College (GVIC) is an Independent, non-government, Islamic school. It was established by the Muslim League of NSW Inc in January 2002 and caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. The College prides itself on providing an outstanding modern education for all students

to help ensure their development as well-rounded individuals, fully prepared to meet the demands of adulthood in Australia.GVIC appointed Kingfisher, a leading Australian company, to design and totally refit the College Library, guided by the librarian, Frances Rotondo. The College’s key design objective was to create a functional, aesthetically appealing space, with areas that cater to the differing needs of students from grades K to 12, and with a custom mural as the centrepiece that brings it all together.

This was primarily achieved by creating two distinct areas to cater for the primary differences between Junior and Senior school students needs. Within these areas, zones were created to allow for different study requirements. The success of the design is borne out by the incredible usage statistics: circulation has increased by nearly 400% since work was completed in 2012 and staff have been amazed at the number of students who come to use the library in their lunch hour.
