East Torrens boasts an excellent school environment with large classrooms and adjoining open teaching spaces, beautifully maintained grounds, tennis courts, gymnasium, drama suite, cricket pitch and Stephanie Alexander Kitchen. Our recently completed Nature Play space provides opportunities for students to learn and play in creative and meaningful ways. We aim to foster imagination, collaboration and creativity through enabling students the ability to manipulate a range of everyday materials. Our students have embraced the ethos of Natural Play and continue to produce high quality outcomes from their investigations and constructions. Features of our space include controlled water play, a dry creek bed, a bike track, outdoor teaching spaces, chickens, a fruit orchard, a mud kitchen and a range of loose parts for play.
We are a school that values 21st Century Learning and provide our students with a range of technologies to cater for access to the curriculum in a variety of ways. An ICT initiative in 2015 saw the implementation of Chromebook devices as a 1:1 learning tool across the school in all year levels. This allows our students to connect and collaborate with each other, both at school and home, in simple yet effective ways not previously possible.
