Facilities

The suite of facilities at Saint Stephen’s College is impressive, but nowhere near as valuable or important as the people who occupy them.

With the exception of the sports centre, all teaching and learning spaces at Saint Stephen’s College are air-conditioned and offer access to a wide range of digital technologies.

Recent developments of new facilities, and facility upgrades, include:

  • four new covered courts (including an outstanding
    sports centre with a very well-equipped gym)
  • twenty-five new classrooms
  • multiple change rooms
  • a kiosk and a grandstand overlooking the sports fields
  • a state-of-the-art iCentre as part of the library
  • new art rooms that converts into an art gallery
  • a staff and student welfare centre that provides space
    for students, parents and staff to meet
  • a new lecture theatre that seats one hundred and thirty people
  • a new unique foreign language centre with two lecture theatres that each seat fifty people, two webinar rooms that each seat thirty people, two collaborative learning areas, and spaces for individuals to use the latest technology to assist their learning.

Technology

It is important to remember that educational software, like textbooks, is only one tool in the learning process. Neither can be a substitute for well-trained teachers, leadership, and parental involvement.

Keith Kruger, CEO of CoSN
