Teaching staff have an excellent staff study and separate staff common room and photocopying and printing facilities are available to staff.  The Administration building contains the main Administration Office, the Student Services Office, Student Coordinator Offices, School Counsellor’s Office and School Executive Offices.

The school grounds are extensive and allow the huge student population sufficient room to spread out at recess and lunch times.  A large, covered Bus Shelter allows students to wait for their buses out of the weather each afternoon.  Sport is very well catered for with basketball courts, cricket nets and playing fields available on campus.

The school internet connection has been upgraded to a fast fibre optic broadband connection direct to the school site and we have an extensive, commercial grade wireless network providing reliable access across the school.

A Master Plan for the upgrading of school facilities was developed during 2010. This Master Plan consisted of four stages. The new state-of-the-art Library came online at the start of 2018.

Stage 4 projects include a major refurbishment of two classroom blocks, landscaping, resurfacing and covering of our huge basketball court area and building of two covered walkways.
