The Secondary School’s Multi Media Centre

The Secondary School's Multi Media Centre (MMC) provides a service to all members of the school community. It offers different learning and leisure media in a supportive environment where users can read, study and relax in a pleasant atmosphere. For this reason the students are asked to behave properly and respectfully.

The MMC is non-stop open and offers a supervised and safe area to its visitors during the lunch break.

Actively supporting teachers and students in their daily work, the coordinator encourages the users to operate independently in the MMC. Therefore, students are asked to search for the required media items directly in the Open Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) and then take them from the shelves by themselves.

The MMC coordinator is responsible for the media stock, for the compliance with the rules and for administrative tasks. The compilation of the school book lists that the parents need to buy for the following school year, falls also within her competences.
