The building has large rooms with wide corridors and stairways, welcoming foyers with couches for students to gather and a homely gas fireplace and television in its reception area.
The Chapel of the Resurrection is a beautiful place of peace and tranquillity with its stunning stained glass windows which were designed by a past student. It was consecrated in 1982 which was the School’s 21st year.
All students from Prep to Year 10 undertake Religious Education classes and can choose to attend an open service held in the Chapel every Friday. Local and School families make up the Chapel Congregation which meets for worship on Sundays. The Chapel is also used to celebrate weddings, christenings and for funerals.
The Science Centre is made up of two areas. The first is a Middle Years science centre with general science rooms as well as an informal learning area to enable some flexibility in the use of space and teaching and learning styles. The VCE Science centre contains specialist rooms for Chemistry, Physics and Biology each of which include a laboratory and a studio. These newly built laboratories and studios are all equipped with interactive white boards and sounds systems which allow the recording of lessons. The laboratories also have cameras which allow practical work to be recorded so that students who are absent are able to view the experiments and to allow all students to review these at home. The Science Centre is a place for students to explore the more theoretical aspects of the various branches of Science and to undertake exciting practical work in our state-of-the-art laboratories.
The Zammit Senior Centre overlooks our athletics track and North oval. This new landmark building boasts 20 state-of-the-art classrooms and a cafeteria which seats 250 students and staff.
The building has a tertiary feel; with the corridors lined on one side by glass walled rooms and on the other by break-out spaces that will promote both collaborative and individual learning. A sizeable space has been devoted to a silent study area. Our Year 11 and Year 12 students have a wonderful facility in which to learn and study and from which they will be able to enjoy views which will extend out over Port Phillip Bay.

In addition to several permanent staff our School is fortunate to have many volunteers who staff the Tuckshop on a rotational basis.
