Donvale Primary School has impressive facilities both inside the classrooms and outside in our extensive grounds.  We are very lucky to be located in a quiet residential area, away from main roads. This allows us to have a dedicated pickup and drop off zone within the school grounds, and many parking options close to the school.  Please take a look below at just some of our state-of-the-art classroom equipment and expansive outdoor spaces.

School grounds

Here is a photo of the front of our school with some of our new play equipment for the seniors.  It is the first of its kind in Australia, and has been a great success with the children. This photo has been taken from our dedicated school drop off drive through zone.  A great advantage in keeping your children away from busy roads !

Large Oval

Our full size oval provides a fantastic arena to many sports activities and lots of games at recess and lunchtime. We play host to many schools within the area on various sports days.  Thanks to our great resources team, our grounds are always in excellent playing condition.

Computer Lab

The school has provided state of the art computer facilities which are constantly upgraded. There is a large lab containing 30 computers, pods of four desktop computers in each classroom and a class set of notebook computers for Year 5/6 students. Interactive Whiteboards and data projectors are installed in every classroom, and these allow teachers to teach specific skills and give software demonstrations, and for groups of students to play educational games and display their work for the class.
