While a school is mostly about its people, facilities also play a major role. It is important to have comfortable, flexible, colourful, well-ventilated and acoustically-sound learning spaces that reflect the desires and needs of today’s learners.
In 2010 the new school building was opened. With flare and creativity, our architects transformed a tired building into a vibrant, colourful and practical learning space. At first the multiple exterior colours will strike you; the historic traditional hues of the stained-glass windows of the adjacent church partnering with the energetic multi-coloured rectangles. Upon entering you will notice the focus on the children’s work on most of the walls. High ceilings, deep windowsills, ample natural light and ventilation, flexible walls; they all add to a building that maximises opportunity for learning.
A large hall, dedicated Pre-Kinder facilities, landscaped play areas, sandpit, play equipment, Canteen, Uniform Shop, Music Room, Art and Science Room, colourful and inviting Library, staff amenities – all set amidst the magnificent native and exotic trees, shrubs and gardens for which Wahroonga is so famously known, and adjacent to the heritage-listed St. John’s Uniting Church with its magnificent high-pitched roofs.
In any contemporary school the integration of technology plays a major part and the School is blessed with a wireless network, feeding its multiple devices such as iMacs, iPads, MacBooks, cameras and Interactive Whiteboards.
