Facilities at St Mary Magdalen's School reflect our educational philosophy of personalised learning. Students are assessed regularly and our programs are designed to meet students at the point of learning needs and learning capability.
Students are organised into Learning Communities: Prep and Junior, Middle and Senior. Each Learning community has a teaching team and our teachers work in partnership with the learning support officers assigned to each area. Our ratio of adults to students is less than 20:1. This gives opportunity for whole group, individual and small group learning.
Our Junior Learning Area offers many opportunities for children to make a great start to their learning. The space includes designated spaces for creativity and active learning, plenty of open spaces, particularly for enabling investigations sessions when the students are creating, experimenting and innovating using the space and equipment around them. The space allows for use of technology, group work, movement and a safe space where every child is visible.
Our facilities include:
- modern well equipped classrooms;
- school hall;
- large area of synthetic grass which includes a soccer field and a volleyball court;
- adventure playground and Adventure Net;
- basketball / netball court and areas marked for small ball games;
- vegetable garden with kitchen facilities for harvesting and cooking food.
SENIOR LEARNING COMMUNITY
The Senior Learning Area is an expansive area to allow for the use of technology, group work and ease of movement for the students.
The school has a strong focus on technology as an important and effective tool to support teaching and learning in the contemporary classroom. Recently we have added coding to our elearning program.
All learning areas have interactive PROMETHEAN SCREENS technology that allows students to access information and resources across the world.
Students in Prep to Year 2 have shared devices.
Our emphasis is on individualised, mobile technology and in Years 3-6 students have assigned One to One devices.
There are many different opportunities for learning at St Mary Magdalen’s. Spacious learning areas, a thriving vegetable garden and outdoor spaces provide children with the freedom to create and play or take some time out for themselves. Essential skills they learn in the playground are part of their social and emotional development.
