Our outstanding indoor and outdoor facilities enable us to provide real-life, whole school connected learning experiences, and support the achievement, engagement and wellbeing for all.
We believe in creating active and engaged learners who can take risks and learn from their mistakes. Our extensive indoor and outdoor learning environments are designed to enable students to practice, discover, explore, critically and creatively think, play, communicate and problem-solve.
Environments are designed to enable explicit teaching, investigative play and problem-based learning.
Extensive grounds provide the backdrop for a wide range of outdoor sports, and active learning. Outstanding student and family designed nature areas, including our Walkway Woods,PEACE Garden, School Garden, STEM Junior Primary space and our recently developed Indigenous Garden are spaces to chill and learn.
With access to the local West Lakes Sports facilities, including the Jubilee Reserve and Tennis Courts we truly have an outstanding environment for our children.
We are further improving learning environments using a $5,000,000 Better Schools fund which will allow us to provide a central community courtyard, renovations to all Junior Primary classrooms and world-class specialist learning area facilities.
Our Learning Landscapes
In our Japanese PEACE garden you are able to undertake quiet, calm activities and be supported to learn and do Japanese cultural activities, such as origami. In our large outdoor nature space students are able to build cubby houses, explore the various pathways, and learn about the various native shrubs, sometimes coming across a lounge of friendly bearded lizards.
Outdoor spaces also exist between buildings and here children can discover and play - developing their imagination and curiosity. Our central courtyard, adjacent to our library, is a cool, sheltered space which has its own mini performance stage. Here, you can regularly find students preparing dances and performing together. Our Indigenous Garden allows students to explore and learn about culture, whilst our Kindy Court is a connected early years play space. Movement walks are designed into the indoor and outdoor spaces to support students sensory needs and provide brain breaks.
All spaces were co-designed from the collaborative voice of parents, staff and students. The Learning Landscapes Action Team continue to seek feedback and plan new directions, whilst also supporting and resourcing new ideas to use these spaces for teaching and learning. Upper Primary Students can select to be Nature Play Crew Leaders and are trained in peer meditation to support younger students in these wonderful play and learning spaces.
