Jarvisfield State School's classrooms are very modern, air-conditioned and carpeted throughout, plenty of break-away spaces for specialist teaching and state-of-the-art equipment for students that includes desks that double as interactive whiteboards. There are plenty of laptops and iPads for our students and interactive smartboards for focus teaching and learning.
Alongside the classrooms, there are three break-away learning spaces, the school library, extensively equipped sports storeroom, the staff room, business manager's office and Principal's office.
The full length veranda overlooking Jarvisfield is cool in summer and provides access to all rooms within the school and a few steps or purpose built ramp leads you outside.
Jarvisfield State School grounds are immaculate and fully enclosed by fence. There are flourishing vegetable and herb gardens created and cared for by the students and teachers. There is also a native garden planted by students and community elders. The focus of this garden is to connect indigenous students with the land by allowing them to plant vegetation that represents their culture and supports the local ecosystem. In addition to the native garden and vegetable patch, there is an acre of land dedicated to native Australian flora. In the cooler months, this botanic garden becomes an outdoor classroom which is proving a very popular and inviting learning environment for our students.
There is substantial play equipment, shaded play areas, a cricket pitch, soccer ground, large undercover play areas and a well-manicured school oval. Our grounds-person takes a lot of pride in her work and our teaching staff and students assist in the appearance and cleanliness of our school.
