Facilities & Hiring

At Barton Primary School our purpose built facilities are designed specifically to promote student learning. In conjunction with this, the school was designed to act as a social infrastructure hub for the local community. The unique design of the school reflects the needs of the community and include features such as development of environments that support a range of learning styles, an embedded awareness of environmental sustainability, and internal environments are well ventilated and rich with natural light.

Through collaboration with consortium partners CERES and YMCA, local councils and other local organisations the facilities are used as a gathering place for local families and residents to enjoy community, arts, sports and recreation programs.

Our Facilities Include:

  • an additional multi-purpose space that can be used by the school during school hours and by the YMCA out of school hours to provide a range of community services and programs;
  • an expanded gymnasium built to Netball Victoria standards;

At Barton Primary School we have formed a partnership up with Casey Cardinia Libraries to make sure students, families and teachers get the most out of their library experience. With generous help from the team at Cranbourne Library, Barton PS has been able to establish a solid foundation of fiction, non-fiction and picture story books. Staff at the library will also hold special story times for the students of Barton Primary School and ensure the school library stays well stocked with fun things to read. Another benefit of our partnership with the Casey Cardina Libraries is our ability as a whole school community to borrow large numbers of books directly from the Cranbourne Branch.
