Teaching Spaces - At present our state of the art facility built through the Commonwealth BER program  accommodates the teaching and learning needs of children in grades 3 to 6. It includes 6 classrooms, open spaced learning areas, offices, kitchen and toilet facilities. The junior classrooms are also well appointed and spacious with internal  access to our refurbished toilet facilities in a well maintained  brick core building and newer portable rooms. The school has an art room, library and a computer lab which can accommodate whole classes. All classrooms also have their own computer equipment for the students to use with a range of desktop and netbook computers and interactive screens installed. At present we are having a new core building constructed to replace the original and this will also involve a redevelopment of the gymnasium and extensive grounds work . Completion date is set down for 4th term 2017.

Gymnasium - The gym allows for the Phys Ed program to take place regardless of weather . It also allows for whole school assemblies,activities, performances and community access. This facility is currently being refurbished and improved.

Playgrounds – Our students are fortunate to have a huge playing space. A large football oval, street soccer and netball complex are included in our school boundary. The school itself is fully fenced and has a large asphalt play area and 2 specialized playground areas with shade structures or natural shade along with 2 large sandpits . We also have an outdoor performance area with seating and a stage. Children are encouraged to use the bike paths that run near us to get to school and we have a secure bike storage facility for them to use. We also have a class set of mountain bikes to promote the safe use of bikes as transport.

We also have a school vegetable garden program running complete with a “chook shed”. The children are involved with a number of sustainability programs as we are also a Resource Smart School. These activities are currently in recess while the school building redevelopment program is running.

School Buses – We are fortunate to have 2 mini buses that we use to add to our students experiences through field trips, sporting activities out of school and mini excursions.
