Our facilities

Modern facilities in a beautiful bushland setting

Playground

One of the most unique qualities of Yarrawarrah Public School is our open space, playground facilities and natural bush setting. Our playground features a running track, futsal court, climbing equipment (we call the 'Tarantula'), a sandpit and a full-sized basketball court.

Students are also provided with many learning opportunities through our school vegetable garden, which they are supported in caring for and maintaining.

Classrooms

Our classrooms are welcoming and modern, providing all students with the best learning environment. Every classroom features comfortable furniture, air conditioning and a Comm Box, so lessons are engaging and interactive. Students have access to the latest technology and regularly use Chromebooks and iPads to assist them in their learning.

Before and After School Care

The Yarrawarrah Activity Centre, known as ‘The Cottage’, provides before and after school care for children attending Yarrawarrah Public School. The centre provides a safe, caring and supportive environment through a fully supervised and creative program of activities. Link here to read more about The Cottage and our partnership with Camp Australia.

School Hall

Our School Hall was constructed in 2006. It is used by the school on a daily basis as part of our dance, drama, music and sport programs and also for our weekly assemblies. The hall is also utilised by local community groups outside of school hours. Enquiries are welcome regarding hiring rates and availability: yarrawarra-p.school@det.nsw.edu.au
