ClickView is Waverley College’s digital video library collection containing educational programs, Movies and TV Shows for use in the classroom, during school breaks and home. Videos are sourced from Free-to-air and Pay Television, varying from ABC to the History Channel, Student works and ClickView original productions, such Bertram Poppingstock: Problem Solver (Which later aired on the ABC).

A major feature that ClickView offers the staff access to a two-week backlog of Free-to-air Television programs. As a staff we would like to encourage both students and parents to contact the Library if you have come across a program that you think would be of value to your child’s education.

To do this please send the following details to librarystaff@waverley.nsw.edu.au

  • Title of the Program
  • Channel the program aired on
  • The Time the program aired

A member of the Library team will be in touch shortly after receiving the email.

We also would encourage the Waverley College Parents to access our ClickView library and see for themselves what is available for the students. To access the ClickView Library your son should be able to show you how!
