St John the Baptist has excellent, modern building facilities. A large level playing oval and well equipped outdoor areas.
Classrooms are equipped with a variety of resources designed to engage and enrich the learning experience of each student. Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard and a range of electronic devices (ipads and Chromebooks) to support contemporary learning.
Library: Our library is a large, attractive and busy space, centrally located for ease of access. We have an extensive selection of books and a bank of thirty computers for students to access before, during and after school.
Students also have a formal weekly library lesson so they can borrow regularly. We also have an online library database “Destiny” so students can browse the library collection at home to find just the right book.
Music: The music room is comprehensively resourced and fully equipped with a diverse range of instruments and sound system. The students have formal music lessons once a week.
Playground: Our school offers a number of different playing areas enabling students to develop a variety of skills while encouraging free and active play.
Our inside playground is a sealed area sheltered by a large covered outdoor learning area with marked handball courts, playground art and undercover lunch seating. Dedicated “art stations” where children can draw, colour in or play cards are located in this area to accommodate children who are unable to participate in active play.
Our outside playground consists of a shaded area with seating and basketball / netball courts for students to enjoy.
We have a large grassed oval where students are assigned to the different areas to enable maximum use and supervision. Ball sports and running games are encouraged in this area.
