Our Facilities

 Impressive use is made of the spaces in the main building, where the two original classrooms have been opened up into a single area. 'This allows not only for team teaching and/or flexible grouping across ages, but also for a number of "nooks" which are used for particular purposes (eg, a parent listening to an individual student read a comfortable reading area for individual study or "breakaway" times; and an area where multi-media work, is undertaken by students, teachers and volunteer parents). Undertaken with a minimal/zero budget, this reconceptualisation of the learning environment is moving towards the kind of flexibility advocated by educational designers such as Mary Featherston.

Extensive use is made of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) across all areas of school operations Student use of computers is based around a 1 to 1 netbook program across the entire school. The balance between the traditional and the modern in this small country school is perhaps symbolised by the juxtaposition of computers and the remembrance roll along the same classroom wall, and the positioning close by of multi-media production-oriented work stations.

Located on the Loddon River, the rural township of Bridgewater-On-Loddon is 35 kms north of the City of Bendigo, along the Calder Highway in Central Victoria.
