Langhorne Creek R-6 ~ Facilities & Resources

Through its connection with the larger school environment and through a community that has a lot of pride in its campus, the grounds and facilities at Langhorne Creek Campus are maintained to a high level. A committee of parents and the Campus Coordinator plan the development of the grounds and organise regular working bees to ensure the are continuously maintained and improved.

The campus has 4 general teaching classrooms a specialist Art Room, a sizeable Activity Room and a Resource Centre. The Resource Centre is well set up with a computing suite and up to date student texts. The Resource Centre is also linked electronically to the Library at Strathalbyn 7-12 Campus to allow students and Langhorne Creek Community members easy access to a larger selection of resources. All rooms are air-conditioned. Students have access to computers and interactive whiteboards in each of the teaching areas. The Junior Primary classroom is situated in a beautifully renovated old stone house which allows great flexibility in the way learning programs are presented to the youngest students at the Campus.

Students have ample space and choices for their playtimes. The campus has a large oval for our students numbers, that is maintained in immaculate condition by our Groundsperson and dedicated parent volunteers. Students have access to a variety of play equipment as well as sandpits and a fully stocked sports shed that is maintained by student Sports Monitors.

The parents and staff of the campus, in consultation with a student planning group, built an extensive fauna enclosure with a variety of birds. This provides students with the opportunity to develop their appreciation of our wildlife, care for the animals and learn about them through direct experience. The campus has a recycling centre that recycles materials from the community.

Students have been involved in an environmental restoration project at Mosquito Creek since 1988. This outdoor classroom has provided students with many rich learning experiences and students are involved in monitoring water quality at Mosquito Creek as part of the Lower Murray Waterwatch Program.
