Intervention Centre

The Intervention Centre is located in the centre of school and is currently used for a variety of learning units and the breakfast club.

A refurbishment of this building took place in 2012/13 and it now houses a dedicated student computer lab, Multi/Mini Lit Learning Unit, The Gray Family Centre community room and student/community cooking facility.

 

Hall

Our indoor assembly area and sports facility is a great space for the whole school to come together for events.  It has recently been fitted with two giant fans, which provide a great airflow for those warmer days.

Oval

Gray Primary School has been extremely lucky in having their school oval upgraded to a major soccer facility and boasts 2 senior and 3 junior ovals, together with professional grandstand and club rooms.  This sporting facility is a magnificent bonus to the school.

Netball / Basketball Courts

Our shaded netball & basketball courts are used daily by classes undertaking physical activity and during inter-school sports challenges.

Play Grounds

With 6 themed playgrounds across the school there is plenty of variety for all age groups.

Veg/Fruit Garden

In late 2010 Gray School commenced developing our fruit & vegetable garden including chicken coop, which consists of:

  • A large chicken coop with ducks and chickens which were raised from eggs
  • Composting bins
  • A worm farm
  • 6 raised fruit/vegetable beds using recycled plastic boarders ( 4.5 x 1.5m).
  • A large tropical fruit bed which has several varieties of bananas, pawpaw, pineapple, dragon fruit

Students participate on a daily basis in establishing and maintaining the garden.  This project provides a holistic approach to children's environmental learning by providing real-life natural experiences including conceptual exploration of living things, life-cycling, recycling, food webs and important lessons on co-operation, ownership, respect and responsibility. 
The garden provides an opportunity to investigate recycling as nature's way of cleaning up the world and the impact of humans on this process.

School Layout

The school has five teaching blocks each with two double classrooms, which can be converted to single rooms by moving the folding wall across, allowing a variety of teaching methods to be adopted.

A double transportable classroom was moved onto the grounds in 1998/99 to cater for increasing enrolments.

A double unit Preschool is on site

Adjoining the school is the Gray Childcare Centre and Community Hall.

The school has a multi-purpose shelter (hall) that is regularly used for assemblies, sporting activities and hired to the community.
