Hawker School site has the administration, executive offices and K-6 classrooms located in the main school building on Erldunda Circuit. Our preschool is located in a purpose built and separately fenced area beside the main building.
Hawker School has large open plan units,withdrawal spaces, 'wet' areas and media rooms. All teaching spaces have access to the wireless network and interactive white boards.
Our library is the heart of the school providing students with opportunities to research on the internet, borrow books, engage in a strategic game of chess or use an interactive white board. Parents are also able to borrow from our resource centre.
Hawker School is renowned for its environment centre with includes a central courtyard garden, recycling centre and a chicken run. The courtyard is an excellent setting for our students to learn about our environment. Hawker School was the first ACT government school to become a Waste Wise school.
The school hall is used for drama, music, games, assemblies and performances. Our multipurpose area is situated outside the canteen and is also used for before and after school care.
Our school grounds are spacious and provide a variety of areas for students to play. Our P&C has contributed greatly to the outdoor environment for the benefit of all of our students.
We have three areas of play equipment. One shade structured area caters for students in K-2 and another caters for students in years 3-6. A climbing play structure is utilised by all children across the school. We have a large all weather shelter shed that serves as an outdoor meeting place for the whole school as well as a shaded recreational area.
In 2011 the P&C successfully installed a full size multi purpose sport court. This new addition is beside the newly landscaped hill to provide another outdoor learning and recreation area.
In 2014 a joint project between the P&C, Hawker School and Education Directorate resulted in a new grass oval for student and community use. This work has significantly improved the school grounds at Hawker School.
The school also installed an outdoor learning space in the playground after winning a 'My School Bonus' competition from 2CC. The new space includes a circle of large rocks, surrounded by ornamental pear trees. This inspiring outdoor learning space will continue to grow and develop and has already become a highly sought after area for play and instruction.
