Illawarra Christian School is located in the foothills of Mt Kembla and has magnificent views across the Illawarra.
Students enjoy specialist classrooms for Creative Arts, TAS, Science and Prep. We aim to provide a safe and secure learning environment that provides up-to-date facilities catering for the needs of a broad range of students from Prep to Year 12.
Our two school libraries cater for the specific needs of students in each section of the school. The junior library is a popular place which encourages our K–6 students to develop a love of reading and learning and is conveniently located near their classrooms and playground. The senior library allows our 7–12 students to conduct research and to focus on private or group learning in a dedicated quiet space.
The multipurpose hall is used for sport and PE, school assemblies, special functions and school performances. It also provides an extension of the playground during break times.
Specialist facilities for Industrial Technology, Design and Technology, Computers, Food Technology and Textiles provide students with practical experience in these diverse fields.
Creative and Performing Arts
The Creative and Performing Arts facilities are located directly under the school hall. These learning areas include a small performance area and classroom for Drama, a vibrant learning and practical space for Visual Arts, and a Music classroom with practice rooms.
Two spacious Science laboratories and a Science prep room provide a safe learning environment for teacher demonstrations and for students to conduct their own experiments both independently and in groups.
Our air-conditioned classrooms are designed to encourage students to engage in active and collaborative learning. Learning spaces are flexible, dynamic and multifunctional. The processes and products of student learning and thinking feature in stimulating classroom displays.
With exciting indoor and outdoor learning spaces, our Prep facility is designed to provide opportunity for young children to learn as they play, explore and discover. We have two Prep classrooms adjacent to a secure Prep playground.
The primary playground is designed to encourage healthy and active play, and infants children find fun and safety in their own playground space. All students have access to the oval, tennis court, COLA and quiet areas. Students play ball games in the hall, an indoor extension of the playground. Senior students enjoy the use of an outdoor kitchen.
