Due to the growing awareness and demand for a Montessori education in the southern region, Southern Montessori has embarked on a building program to cater for this demand. The Federal Government's stimulus package contribution, combined with our own funds, has enabled us to construct four, purpose built classes. The extra classroom space has given us the flexibility to both allow class grouping structures matching Maria Montessoriís sub-planes of child development as well as expanding the number of classes available into the future.
The Cycle 1 classrooms (3 - 6 year olds) and the Cycle 3 classrooms (9 - 12 year olds) were finished in March 2010 and Amanda Rishworth MP, Federal Member for Kingston, was our special guest at the Opening Ceremony on June 4th.
In November 2012, the School Board approved an undertaking to commence work to provide a third Cycle 3 classroom. We anticipate completion of building works in April 2013.
You are most welcome to come and take a look at our new facilities as part of the School Tours scheduled each term (see under Enrolments) or by arrangement with the Principal.
