School Facilities

Creating opportunities

Our school has modern and contemporary facilities ensuring your child has every opportunity to engage in activities which develop academic and social skills.

As an Independent Public School we are committed to ongoing school improvement.

Classrooms

We have 29 "State of the Art" classrooms featuring WIFI capability, smart boards and CommBox technology. All classrooms are fitted with contemporary furniture which is aesthetically pleasing and conducive to high quality teaching and learning environments.

We encourage creative spaces throughout the school. In some classrooms we have agile learning spaces featuring furniture that can be changed at the drop of a hat to suit the style of the learning activity.

Bakewell has a purpose built OSHC (Outside School Hours Care) room that is used after school and during school holidays. The room is also utilised by our Bakewell Supported Playgroup.

Playgroup

The Bakewell School Supported Playgroup complements our Early Learning Unit and caters for children from birth to 4 years of age. We provide families with an educational environment that delivers the Abecedarian Approach to teaching and learning. This approach is designed to enhance children’s cognitive, emotional and communication development and readiness for school.

The Playgroup is reflective of the Northern Territory Government Great Start Great Future: Early Years Strategic Plan, providing children in the Bakewell Community with the best possible start to education and building parental capacity.

Preschool

The Bakewell Primary School Early Learning Unit has two Preschool classrooms with preschool groups operating for half day sessions from Monday to Friday. Our preschool classrooms have access to the in-ground paddle pool which is often used for wet play activities and helps preschool students to cool down during the hotter months of the year!

School Facilities

Library

The Bakewell Primary School Library is a learning centre for all students, teaching staff and parents. With over 45,000 resources in our library program it supports and reinforces the educational goals of the school.

Students can utilise scheduled time to read in the library or borrow books to take home and read at their leisure. Educational activities and resources are also available during lunchtime and we encourage students to engage in the planned activities held each day.

The library environment is welcoming, stimulating and engaging and provides teaching staff with curriculum based resources for teaching and learning programs. We have a Parent Resource Section available and parent borrowing is also encouraged.

School Facilities

Indoor Multi Purpose Area

The indoor multi purpose hall is utilised for a range of sporting activities especially gross motor programs for Transition to Year 2 students, gymnastics for all students, OSHC and Vacation Care activities and other community events.

Performing Arts Studio

The Performing Arts Studio offers students the opportunity to engage in a range of creative activities such as drama, music, dance and creative performance.

Playgrounds

At Bakewell Primary School there are five different areas with playground equipment.

The Early Learning Unit has one playground area for Preschool students and another for Transition students. Playground equipment supports the students to develop emotionally, physically and socially.

The Transition Students have a playground area which encourages social interaction, building confidence and developing their self-esteem.

The other two playgrounds are for students across the whole school. The playground areas are innovative and encourage social interaction with peers. Physical activities like these are good for health, fitness and physical development.

School Facilities

Undercover Outdoor Area

Our undercover outdoor area features two specialised courts that can be used for a variety of sports. The school stage is also located in this area and provides an ideal venue for school assemblies, the annual school performance and other community events.
