Mater Dei Catholic Primary School Blakehurst is designed specifically to reflect the developmental needs of our children as they journey from early childhood through to Year 6. Our spaces reflect a connection to the natural environment providing our children with opportunities to explore, collaborate and grow together.
Beyond the Classroom
Mater Dei has generous outdoor facilities such as a large playground with a basketball/netball court, play equipment and grassed area for lunchtime play. We also have an outdoor learning space to include a children’s garden club, sandpits and a Kindergarten rainbow courtyard as a tribute to indigenous culture.
Recently renovated and refurbished classrooms have created more flexible learning spaces to allow for active learning and a diverse range of learning activities to cater to curious minds. We also have a Learning Centre that incorporates a library, think tank, technological activities, adult learning and a Year 6 learning space.
We have the benefit of two parks, Carrs Park and Todd Park, across from the school that host our sports lessons each week and combined school events. We also have recourse to the Mater Dei Church, parish hall and presbytery that are all housed on the school grounds.
