The school is currently undergoing renovation and at its completion all students will have access to state of the art classrooms and specialist areas.
Architecturally, Curtin Primary School is of traditional design with individual classrooms. The school has a well equipped hall/gymnasium and specialist rooms for music, art, Indonesian and audio-visual activities. Our library/resource centre is computerised, well resourced and includes an ever-increasing supply of educational games. Our new multipurpose building provides an extra hall, an art and science room as well as a music room. Quality computer resources are available in all classrooms. Our junior and senior playgrounds both have large grassed areas, shaded areas, playground equipment, and students have access to a variety of sports equipment to use during playtimes. As well as having two large enclosed courtyards, one in the centre of the senior building and one in the centre of the junior building, the school also has access to Curtin Oval which is adjacent to the senior playground.
Resource Centre - School Library
The resource centre is well used by students, right across the school. Classes are timetabled to use the library each week and receive instruction in information literacy, including familiarisation with information and communication technology and research skills. In addition, the library is available for children to access at lunchtimes. Children are able to use the automated system to borrow and return books, as well as performing their own on-line catalogue searches.
Information Communication Technology
Curtin Primary School has a dynamic Information and Communication Technology Plan and is working constantly to access to up to date technology. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards (IWBs) and networked computers, all with Internet capability, using IBM compatible PCs. The use of ICT equipment is integrated into classroom use across the curriculum. All students also have access to networked laptop computers and iPads, which can be used in any area of the school. The students also have access to a variety of digital media, including iPads, still image cameras and video cameras.
