Facilities

Our Campus

The School campus is designed to maximise the optimal learning and social opportunities of our students. Modern buildings and beautifully landscaped grounds contribute to providing a wonderful environment for our students' school experience.

Both the Senior School and Junior School enjoy excellent resources in the classrooms as well as having access to exceptional facilities on campus.

The Pringle Building

The School Auditorium was recently extended to include a number of new facilities. It was officially opened in June 2012 and named The Pringle Building in honour of the President and Founder of our School, Dr Phil Pringle.
The Pringle Building includes:
  • The Auditorium, which facilitates a gymnasium and basketball court, as well as full School assemblies and performances
  • The Theatre, which has retractable seating accommodating up to 125 people and is ideal for smaller performances and lectures. The Theatre and the Auditorium can be used as one space or separately when partitioned. Both have excellent lighting and sound equipment
  • The Performing Arts space has purpose-built Dance and Drama studios, five music tuition rooms and one production studio, an acoustic music room, an electronic music studio, and a dedicated concert and stage band rehearsal room

The Creekside Café

There’s nothing better than a good cup of coffee to kick-start your day or to enjoy with friends! Located near the deck, overlooking a beautiful bush and creek setting, our Creekside Café offers excellent beverages to the School community.

Our professional barista makes delicious espresso coffees, hot chocolates, teas and light snacks which can be enjoyed in a relaxed alfresco environment. Whether you are already a part of the School community or here for a visit, why not stop by and grab yourself a cappuccino, flat white or chai latte for a well-deserved break!

Outdoor Recreational Areas 

A full-sized football field, an outdoor interactive playground for our K–2 students, a mini oval and designated play area for our K-6 students, and an exciting adventure playground for our Junior School are some of the great outdoor areas our students enjoy.

A large deck area with picnic tables and chairs as well as café tables overlooking the creek is a wonderful space for students, teachers and the community. Now with a retractable roof, heating and a BBQ, the area is used all year round for various functions.

We also have many well-appointed outdoor areas for recreational purposes in our Senior School.

Canteen

A healthy lifestyle plays a vital part in assisting young people to grow and develop to their highest potential both physically and mentally. Our fresh approach to the dietary and nutritional content of the food we provide our students ensures our menus contribute substantially to their daily nutritional intake and develops healthy eating habits. With an increased quantity of hot meals and fresh snacks prepared on-site our parent community, staff and students embrace a healthy lifestyle culture. 

Uniform Shop

Our School uniform and how it is worn is a reflection of our School’s identity in the community. In keeping with our School motto, For Greatness, For Excellence, For Christ we encourage our students to wear their uniform with pride and confidence inside and outside the School grounds.

Both our Junior and Senior School uniforms have been designed to provide comfort and style whilst enhancing the health and safety of our students throughout their daily school activities.

Our uniform shop Argyle and Tweed is located on the School campus and operates on outsource terms in conjunction with a dedicated team of volunteers from within the School community.

Learning Resource Centre

The Learning Resource Centre provides an open and welcoming environment for students and teachers. We have a comprehensive and contemporary range of resources, including online and e-book facilities for students and staff.

Junior School

Students in Kindergarten to Year 6 actively participate in our information literacy initiatives, which include the Premier’s Reading Challenge, Book Week, Book Fair and Accelerated Reader. Each class visits the Learning Resource Centre every week. The literacy program is designed to inspire and encourage students to engage in a wide range of dynamic and contemporary resources, and aims to promote a lifelong love of reading and learning.

Senior School

The wide variety of senior fiction, fiction, non fiction, magazines, reference and study guides give students access to a great range of resources. This includes online databases and research tools, related text resource listings and specific assistance with research and study skills. Notebook computers are available for student use. A senior study room is provided for our Years 11 and 12 students, with access to our full range of services.

Information Technology

Oxford Falls Grammar School has launched a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program in 2016. Research shows that BYOD programs, done well, can lead to increased student motivation and engagement with learning, and therefore improved student learning outcomes over time. Students in Kindergarten to Year 4 have access to school-supplied iPads. In Years 5 to 12 students will use their own MacBook, laptop or iPad, based on their Year group. This is part of our school’s overall strategy to improve students’ learning experiences and increase access to technology.

The BYOD program allows teachers to more effectively integrate the use of technology in the classroom to facilitate collaborative, inquiry-based learning while developing students’ skills as 21st century learners and citizens. Following inquiry-based learning experiences, research has shown, students have greater confidence in their own ability and improved ownership of their own learning.

The school continues to invest in necessary infrastructure, professional development and innovative technologies to. In the Senior School students have access to technology hubs with industry-standard equipment for specialist subjects. Junior School classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards. A new learning management system is schedule for implementation in 2017 to promote an interactive learning environment to facilitate formative assessment, manage assignments and deliver online content.
