A safe and pleasant learning environment

Our school is pleasantly located on tree lined grounds between a Buddhist temple and the local soccer fields. It comprises a large two-storey brick classroom block, adjacent administration block, classrooms and dental clinic. Our new Gymnasium, Discovery Centre and extensive classroom refurbishment have recently been completed. This has been part of our ongoing plan for the development and upgrade of our grounds and buildings.

Music, Science, Art rooms and Gymnasium

Hands-on-learning is facilitated in our well-equipped Science and Art rooms.

We also have a music suite that facilitates comprehensive whole class music programs, choir and instrumental music learning. The school has a good stock of percussion, keyboards, woodwind and brass instruments that are used by students in their programs.

A new gymnasium with a full sized basketball court is used for physical education lessons as well as whole school assemblies and events.

Discovery Centre

The Pennington School R – 7 Discovery Centre is open for students every school day before school and at lunch time. It provides a welcoming, user-friendly environment, promoting a “reading culture” and opportunities for students to engage with different forms of literature and information literacy skills with confidence. Our wide range of relevant resources and technologies support both the curriculum and the recreational needs of our students.

ICT

At Pennington School R – 7, school funds, donations and grants have enabled our school to establish a well-equipped and reliable Information and Communications Technology wireless network that is easily accessed by all students and staff. Our computer suite, Discovery Centre and classrooms are all fitted with Interactive whiteboards and modern computers to facilitate stimulating and informative learning activities. Portable devices including ipads and tablets are available for student use.
