“He has no need of adult influences to call out his activity, a tranquil environment suitable to the interests of his age an the freedom to follow the promptings of his own inner need are sufficient for him.” Dr Maria Montessori

Children’s House Playground

Our students are treated to a secure and expansive play area, featuring a large sandpit and explorational playground and shaded jungle gym. Each day provided the weather is clear, students are supervised by staff while they have fun playing and learning on their own playground.  

Lower and Upper Primary Playground

Our Lower Primary to Upper Primary students have the opportunity to play on the purpose built and shaded jungle gym complete with a range of interactive features like a mini telescope and flying fox. During lunchtime, students are supervised while they play and explore.

Mud Pit and Playground

A popular lunchtime activity in summer, students from Lower and Upper Primary thoroughly enjoy their purpose-built mud pit area. We encourage students who want to play in the mud pit to always bring along a spare set of clothing in their bags to change into after mud pit play has finished. Mud pit play encourages students to develop tactile skills through sensory play and gives them a chance to boost creativity without fear in a free-flowing natural environment.

Soccer & Sports Fields

Mainly utilised for Health and Physical Education classes as well as lunchtime and after school sports, our soccer & sports fields offer students another expansive green space to learn and play. These two areas also complete with soccer goal posts.
