About Our School

 

CLASSROOMS

Warranwood PS was built in 1996. The permanent classrooms are modern architecturally designed open spaces. The rooms also have separate wet areas and computer rooms. The Senior School Learning Centre building was completed in July 2011 as part of the Federal Government economic stiumuls package. This building provides a wonderful environment for collaborative and independent learning.  

  

VISUAL ARTS
The school has a spacious fully equipped art room for the students to produce wonderfully creative pieces.

 

PERFORMING ARTS
The school provides a huge double classroom space for Performing Arts. This allows for dramatic movement, large instruments such as marimbas and a practice space for concerts. Every child performs in public every year, with Prep and Junior School classes performing at school and the Middle and Senior School classes performing either at a local theatre, or most recently in their own movie at Reading Cinemas.
