Our school

Pinnacle State School has two separate high set teaching blocks and a double classroom.  All rooms are air conditioned.  Block B consists of a teacher/resource room and a computer room.  These blocks are joined by a built-in veranda which incorporates a small kitchenette.  This block is used by students, staff and community members and is a valuable resource.

Under block B there is a cleaner storeroom, and a screened food preparation room which is used by children and staff for their weekly "Kids Kitchen".  Fridges are provided for children's lunch storage.  Picnic tables and benches are provided so children can eat their lunch in comfort.

Block A houses an office and reception area, Principal’s office, years 3-7 classroom and a staffroom. Below block A is the Prep-3 classroom.  This classroom has a toilet block and storage room attached.  Outside this room is a toilet that provides disabled person’s access.

At the rear of the school is the Bendigo building. This building has 2 classrooms, one classroom for the music and Languages Other Than English (LOTE) classes and a classroom that is used for work with individuals or small groups of students. There is also a small kitchen and office. 

Also at the rear of the school is the new Building the Education Revolution (BER) room. This is the Resource Centre and a small computer lab.  Individual and small group sessions take place in this room.  This area is also used by staff to develop resources for teachers and students. 

The school has a large undercover area used for shelter during hot or rainy days.  This area is used to play handball, volleyball, dance, hold discos, and a variety of other uses.  Another smaller undercover area is situated near the multi purpose court.  This area is used for social events where community members can use the tennis court and undercover area. 

The groundsperson, staff and students take enormous pride in the maintenance of the grounds.  Gardens and numerous trees have been planted to beautify the grounds.  We have planted out an area as a rainforest with this area continuing to be developed further.  The school has 2 fully covered adventure playgrounds, a cricket pitch, extensive flat play areas, and undercover areas.

The cemented multi purpose court is used for tennis, basketball and netball.

The school has a large three-door garden shed where garden equipment, ride-on mower, etc. and some teaching resources are stored.  The roller door on the building’s side provides easy access for large items of sporting equipment. A 6x6 storage shed has been built near the lower years classroom.  This stores the many pieces of play equipment used for Prep/early years program.
