Our new Brooklyn Park Campus provides an Early Learning Centre and Junior School (Foundation to Year 6). Located at 34 Lipsett Terrace, the Brooklyn Park Campus is an extension of the excellent standard of non-denominational, Christ-centred education already provided at South Plympton Campus.

Early Learning Centre

From commencement in January 2020, the ELC will open and offer enrolment for children aged 3 to 5 years old. The nationally adopted Early Years Learning Framework will be presented from a Christian worldview, enriched by embracing practices from Guided Play-Based Learning, Reggio Emilia and Nature Play.

Junior School

From commencement in Term 1, 2020 enrolments will be offered for Foundation through to Year 2. We believe this staged development will create a community-based environment where your child will be nurtured and supported. It will also allow each student to individually grow and learn as the school grows. The commencement of other year levels faster than the above growth plan would be considered based on demand.

Applications for enrolments for Foundation to Year 2, 2020 and beyond are now open. Please submit one application form per child and use the sibling application form for subsequent children.

Due to enrolment demand exceeding our expectations, we are now taking expressions of interest for Year 3 2020. If you are interested in enrolling your child in Year 3 for 2020, please contact Barb Greenslade or call 8292 3834.

One College, Two Campuses

Governed and operated by the existing Board and Executive Leadership team will ensure a consistent, authentically Christian and non-denominational approach to education. Our existing Head of Junior School, Helen Vonow will have initial oversight of the new Brooklyn Park Campus and our Principal, Andrew Linke will remain as Principal of both campuses.

Guaranteed ELC to 12 Pathway

We aim to provide a complete schooling pathway for all our students across both campuses. All Brooklyn Park Campus students will have guaranteed access to the South Plympton Middle School at the conclusion of Year 6 at Brooklyn Park.
