The school facilities include an historic bluestone building that houses a classroom and an adjoining kitchenette which was recently completely refurbished courtesy of the Commonwealth 2007 Investing in our Schools Program. There are also two new classrooms, an Art Shed, a storage shed and toilet facilities (a male/female toilet block and a combined staff/integration toilet). Our administration area includes the staffroom, Principal's office and general office.

 

The grounds surrounding the buildings, have passive and active recreational facilities including playgrounds, picnic/barbecue area, and access to adjoining tennis courts.

 

Adjacent to the school run two creeks which provide a focus for environmental studies. Unfortunately the creeks have flooded the school on a number of occasions, the worst being January 2011.  The photos to the left show the water levels at that time.

 

The school is pleasantly shaded by established trees, both native and European.

 

Continued development of the grounds provide further recreational and environmental learning areas for the children.

 

The original bluestone classroom was completely refurbished both inside and out courtesy of the Commonwealth Government's National Schools Pride Project but the carpets had to be replaced again after the floods.

In early February 2014 our school was seriously impacted by two fires which started in Mickleham and Clarkefield. The photos to the left show how close the fire came to our school.  Thankfully, due to the fantastic efforts of our own Victorian CFA & MFB firefighters and those from the NSW Rural Fire Services, the school remained unscathed.
