Our Lakeside Campus adopts a schools-within-a-school design, which creates unique and distinct communities in a school that houses students from Nursery through to Grade 12. We combine state-of-the-art classrooms, learning pods, and other learning spaces to support our inquiry-based approach and encourage a strong sense of community. This intentional approach in school design ensures we can meet the educational and developmental needs of all our students.
Enjoy a warm and nurturing school
We want our students, young and old, to enjoy a warm and nurturing school environment where they feel happy, safe and valued. Our Kindergarten children learn in a dedicated Kindergarten wing (and will be moving into a brand new building in January 2023), while Primary and Secondary students attend most classes in designated Primary and Secondary zones.
Kindergarten and Primary classrooms are organised by grade levels, and Secondary classrooms are organised by subject and discipline. All classrooms at Lakeside spill out into learning pods - large open spaces that are highly versatile and support a range of learning needs. In Kindergarten and Primary, teachers can use them for experiments, exhibitions and celebrations, while Secondary School pods are used as study and collaboration zones.
Lakeside’s indoor facilities include dedicated STEAM makerspaces, green room, digital recording studio, music and science labs, an arts centre, a 500-seat theatre, a gymnasium and multi-storey library. Outdoor facilities include a swimming complex, multi-purpose recreational centre (all weather basketball court, state-of-the-art climbing walls), tennis courts, sport field and a dedicated discovery areas for our primary students.
Areas designed with purpose
Every area on campus is designed to support curiosity, collaboration, invention and making connections - to both people and learning. Our students develop joined-up thinking as they work together, and discover that innovation and collaboration is the key to success in today’s modern world. This is the case with our brand new junior wing* which is scheduled to open in January 2023.
* During construction, the junior pool and prior outdoor discovery centre (ODC) are closed. Alternate facilities are in place during this period.
