Sheep Station Gully Environmental Science Centre
Algester School and St Stephens Primary School share a purpose built Environmental Science facility between both campuses. Staff and students, as part of their Science curriculum lessons throughout the school year, use this unique environmentally friendly facility.
Multimedia and Performing Arts Centre (AMAC)
The Performing Arts Centre houses a performance classroom, a multimedia classroom, a computer classroom and a resource centre.
The performance centre, with its state of the art audio and lighting equipment enhances our focus on the arts which involves such events as: an annual concert or Arts Festival; an Enhancement program with components focussing on drama, dance, visual arts, music or media; Algester Talent Show: a successful instrumental music program, dance clubs and Cheerleading. It also used extensively by all our students in their performance related units.
The Resource Centre is home to our book and audio-visual collection. It is an exciting and very engaging space for learning and teaching. The resource centre is open from 8.30 – 3.30pm each day for borrowing and returning of books.
We have three specialised Music rooms at our school: a Music classroom and two Instrumental Music practice rooms. These rooms are fully equipped with a variety of musical instruments, which are lent to students who are included in our Instrumental Music program for a period of one year.
The Hall provides a venue for a variety of activities for the school and the broader community. Our school uses it regularly for assemblies, physical education, sport, dances, performances, special events and celebrations. The community hires the hall for sport, leisure and religious activities.
The amphitheatre space located beside the Hall is an open area venue used for performance, class presentations and group gatherings. It is covered with shades to provide a shaded meeting venue for students.
Our grounds provide facilities to support learning across the curriculum. Attractive covered areas, tables and chairs and concreted areas provide spaces for classes or groups of students to work outside the buildings.
The outdoor facilities make available open playing areas as well as purpose built recreation equipment. These are used to support our health related units, as well as providing exciting play spaces for students.
