Facilities

pacImplementation of the School’s Facilities Master Plan has resulted in an ongoing program of facilities improvements and capital works aimed at providing the best learning and living environment for Glennie girls.

The Glennie School Junior Years campus is a modern facility with specially designed teaching and learning spaces, including a spacious Library, Art Studio and Music rooms and a purpose built undercover play and sports area. Virtual tour.

Middle and Senior Years Library and Classrooms are light and bright, and ergonomically designed to accommodate girls of all ages. Glennie encourages and showcases the extraordinary artistic talents of the girls in a well-resourced Performing Arts Centre. Virtual tour.

Surrounded by a garden setting that provides a wonderful ‘green space’ for relaxation and recreational activity, Glennie’s excellent boarding facilities for girls in Year 6 to Year 12 are a modern, comfortable, vibrant and a welcoming ‘home away from home’.

Glennie’s world-class sporting facilities are an athlete’s delight, and include a synthetic track for athletes, indoor heated 25m swimming pool, volleyball, netball and tennis courts, football oval and a well-equipped gymnasium.

The School has  brand new Science Laboratories, an Information Resources Centre (incorporating the School’s two Libraries), wireless networking, computers integrated into the curriculum from Year 5, and facilities for Visual Arts, Food and Fashion, Home Economics and Hospitality training.

The Science and Technology Centre is now complete and includes six laboratories, preparation rooms, student and staff amenities. The Centre is a continuation of the eastern end of the Knapp Building. The Centre will enable Science teachers to further improve the programs and new laboratories will improve the STEM experience for the girls, allowing more challenging experimental programs and greater use of innovative technology.

A Community Indoor Sports, Recreation and Wellness Centre is scheduled for 2018.

The Glennie School is part of National Solar Schools Program funded by the Commonwealth Government and is contributing to its environmental sustainability by the use of solar panels in the Junior Years. Other measures to improve the School's environmental footprint include storing and recycling harvested rain water, solar heating for filtered bore water supplies to the boarding houses and reduction in electricity usage.
