The McAuley-Playford campus began operating in 1997 with both schools financially contributing towards the operating of the shared facilities for the benefit of all students and staff.

We offer unique learning opportunities by sharing resources and facilities with Playford Primary School and maximizing benefits of these facilities for our staff and students.

Our shared spaces include:

Out of School Hours Care
Resource Centre/Library
Canteen

Students also share play areas during recess and lunch and are supervised from staff from both schools.

Buddy classes, campus sport, campus assemblies, campus curriculum committees, student Representative meetings and campus staff meetings are part of the campus routines and daily activities

A spirit of respect and collaboration is strong within staff and students and ensures the success of our unique educational model.
