...a futures focused senior secondary college

Facilities

Palmerston Senior College is a modern, custom built college on spacious grounds. Our  comprehensive facilities allow students to explore and enrich their areas of interests. Whether students interests be academic, sporting or artistic in nature, our aim is to foster an environment that challenges, excites and engages our students.

Careers Centre

A primary goal at PSC  is to prepare and assist our students for their future study options and career. A dedicated Careers Centre ensures PSC students are well prepared when making decisions regarding their chosen career pathway.

The Careers Centre is a popular destination, especially for our year 12 students. With a Careers Advisor available to discuss career and further education options with students and parents, the centre provides  students with up-to-date information on careers, courses and admission requirements from tertiary institutions around Australia.

Commercial & Home Economics

Our students benefit from a range of outstanding specialist commercial and home economics  facilities, including a commercial-standard kitchen that allows PSC to offer a VET accredited course in Hospitality.

Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

Information technology plays an important role in everyday life at PSC.  Instructional, creative, assistive and innovative technology tools are seamlessly integrated into the College’s teaching and learning programs, allowing students the chance to achieve academic goals in a way that would not be possible using traditional methods.

Students have access to laptop computers and interactive whiteboards and are encouraged to make use of these for classwork and related activities. To ensure technology is used appropriately, all students and parents/carers sign an ICT Acceptable Use Agreement.

Library

The Library offers a wide range of resources to support teaching and learning within the College. It is a contemporary learning facility designed around the needs of students and staff.

The Library provides the flexibility necessary to suit students’ different learning capacities and styles. Differentiated environments allow for individual study and quiet reading and give students the opportunity to learn, develop and use their research skills.

The Library offers access to advanced technology, with print and electronic media selected to support independent study and provide a facility where teachers can conduct class research and technology based class activities.

Music Room and Recording Studio

At PSC, all students have the opportunity to participate musically through a wide array of curricular and co-curricular activities. Our music area features a dedicated  teaching space and fully equipped recording studio.

Science Laboratories

Our dedicated Science Centre includes well-equipped modern laboratories and learning spaces. Maintained by a laboratory technician, the centre caters for all levels of  General Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

Theatre

Our custom built theatre complex allows a full performance experience for our students. It features seating for 96 people, a stage, dressing rooms, reception foyer, ticket box and control box room.

Used for all drama and dance performances, students are invited to master the use of these facilities through theatre design, technical lighting and sound and front-of-house roles. The theatre features a fully sprung floor, providing the perfect space for dance rehearsals. The innovative flexible design means that the stage can be opened and large public presentations and assemblies can be easily accommodated.

Visual Arts

With classes in drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, pottery, painting, digital media and more, PSC’s visual arts program consistently stimulates our students’ creativity.

Taught within the curriculum, students have the opportunity to develop their technique, skills and an appreciation for art. Our fully equipped ceramics studio allows students to explore  and express their creative talents as well as learn valuable technical skills.

Sporting Facilities

PSC’s outstanding facilities and dedicated coaching staff will ensure that no matter where their sporting interests lie, students’ enthusiasm, passion and dedication will be wholeheartedly supported.

Gymnasium

Our purpose built fully air-conditioned gymnasium contains facilities and playing courts for a variety of sports including badminton, netball, volleyball, basketball, and gymnastics.  Housing climbing ropes and strength and conditioning equipment, there is something for everyone. The gymnasium is also available for hire to outside user groups.
