St Joachim’s has many high-quality and well-designed learning facilities.
Before, after school and vacation care
Conveniently located in the school grounds, our before and after school care is accessible for families. The caring and motivated Funtastic Gems team provides students with fun and exciting activities together with healthy and nutritious food. Vacation care is also available.
We enjoy the use of two play areas which gives us the opportunity to provide flexible, interactive, outside environments to meet student needs. There are areas that are shady and green, covered courts, creative play areas such as sand pits and larger open areas for active games such as basketball and handball.
Our school canteen is currently open four days a week with a menu in accordance with NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy. Staff employed have completed training in food handling and preparation and have current Working With Children Checks. A menu is sent home at the beginning of each term.
Featuring contemporary lighting and sound, our multipurpose Mary Mackillop Centre is a significant place for learning, school celebrations and community gatherings. Historic Grady Hall provides a second gathering space for prayer, drama and debating.
Our bright and spacious library contains an extensive collection of fiction, non-fiction and e-books to promote student-centred learning. This inviting space fosters a love of literature.
Our vibrant classroom environments all have new furniture. These spaces provide a safe and supportive learning culture that encourages risk taking and develops self efficacy.
