School grounds and classrooms

The buildings and facilities include:

  • A low set modular building (A Block) that opened in 1996.  This houses a general learning area/classroom, an Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) computer lab, a resource room, a storage room and cleaning cupboard.  The general learning area is air-conditioned (reverse cycle) and has wheelchair access.
  • A new low set modular building (Admin) was opened in 2010 under the Building Education Revolution (BER) Program. It houses an administration area/office, a library, a meeting area and the Principal's Office.  This became a second classroom in 2018 due to the increase in enrolments and due to the Kindergarten regulations allowing a maximum of 25 students in A Block.
  • A large playing oval, including a cricket pitch.
  • Two large, shade covered adventure playgrounds.
  • A flood-lit tennis court that was fully refurbished in 2015.  
  • Two large covered areas adjoining a fully equipped kitchen that also serves as a staff/parent room. 
  • Covered walkways that link the classroom building to the covered area.
  • Two double bay storage sheds and a shed housing sporting equipment.
  • A fully air-conditioned three-bedroom house for Principal accommodation. 
  • An additional one bedroom self-contained donga for Teacher accommodation.

Resource centre

Students are encouraged to borrow books once per week from a wide range of Junior Fiction, Fiction and Non-Fiction books.  

New books are purchased through a standing order arrangement.

We have a Scholastic Annual Book Fair each year in conjunction with our Major P&C Fundraiser in Term 3.  Profits from the Book Fair provides funds to purchase new books for the School Library.

Water supply

Valkyrie State School does not have a permanent water supply and relies on nature and a large number of rainwater storage tanks.  BAS services the water pumps biannually.  During periods of dry weather, water must be trucked in for drinking, amenities and watering the very limited gardens. Toilets are operated by a septic system and serviced once every three months by BAS.
