Facilities

Our school features large play areas for children which are constantly improving. Older students have supervised access to a large oval across the road which has football and soccer goals available as well as a concrete cricket pitch. Younger students have a smaller oval with netted soccer goals and a sandpit. There is ample hard play space for basketball, netball and popular school yard games such as four square.

Classrooms are much larger than standard. Each class has a bank of computers accessible to students and there are sets of iPads for “research on the run.”

Our LOTE (Korean) classroom focuses on traditional and contemporary Korean culture and students are taught language through activities, conversations and songs. Korean was adopted as our language in 2014 for the first time.

Our library is compact and was renovated in 2011. Students who are independent readers participate in the Lexile Reading Programme with a large selection of books available.

Our JP area features an outdoor area with sandpit, decking and planter boxes. This is used during our morning play-based learning time during which children participate in many activities designed to provide opportunities to develop social skills, oral language, cooperation and problem solving skills.

We have a large gym with an indoor basketball court, sports equipment and kitchen. This is used during PE lessons, for special events such as school discos, concerts and for assemblies and is opened for students on pre-arranged lunch times.

At the rear of the school, we have cultivated an area of bushland with all local indigenous species. This can be used by teachers during class time and the public is welcome to use the walking tracks after-hours.

We have a school-based Preschool on-site. This is managed through the school so please contact the front office for further information. Preschool children have access to school facilities.

Playgroup is available for children from babies to school-aged. This is open on Wednesdays from 9am to 11am. There is no cost to parents as the school supports the Playgroup financially and through staffing.

We are proud of our school and are happy to invite you on a tour. Please contact the school for an appointment.
