The school environment

The Grounds

The school is situated in Horsley in the middle of an established residential area.  The grounds are beautifully landscaped with large grassed and concrete playing areas for the students.  Security fencing surrounds the school supporting a safe learning environment. 

Our school has two covered outdoor learning areas (COLA) to provide areas for Dapto students to play out of the sun and rain, along with being another venue for assemblies and special events.

The Classrooms

Our classrooms contain the latest in technology and educational teaching aides. Every class has an interactive whiteboard. This is the latest in educational technology. All computers are connected to the internet ensuring that all children are connected to the world. Each classroom has a class bank of computers which have filtered internet access.  

The Library, Computer Lab and Multimedia Centre

The Library is a focal point of the school, and is situated in the middle of our grounds.  It is computerised and connected to the Internet.  There is a small network of computers for students to enhance their research and technology skills. Associated with the library building is our school’s computer lab and multimedia centre. This houses 30 desktop systems to provide for the tuition of technology. Features of this room include, projector, full internet access and a server for students to individually logon and retain their work.

The library is also equipped with a Connected Classroom Interactive Whiteboard which teachers can use to communicate and share lessons with other participating schools.

A Book Fair is held at least once a year with all money raised from the sale of these books going to further expand our resources in the library. 

School Hall

The school hall provides a venue for assemblies, dance, drama and musical activities.  Visiting performance groups use the hall to present items of educational value to the children.  

The hall is also currently used by After School Care and as a polling venue for elections.
