The Minimbah Campus is situated in peaceful native surroundings. Care has been taken in the development of all Woodleigh Campuses to ensure that the built environment does not overwhelm the surrounding natural environment which is unique and special to our School.
The Minimbah Early Childhood Centre
Education at Minimbah begins in our purpose-built Early Childhood Centre. ‘ECC’ is a fun, welcoming and safe space – specifically designed to cater for the enquiry-based and play-based curriculum that we offer. Students in the Minimbah ECC have their own playground and outdoor classroom areas, bathrooms, classrooms and lockers.
On Thursdays the 4-year-old ECC group spend their day at 'The Minimbah Creek', an outdoor play and enquiry-based learning program based on the Nordic Forest Schools principles.
Minimbah Campus Facilities
The Minimbah Campus (located in Frankston South) features a full complement of specialist facilities including the Music House, gymnasium and newly resurfaced oval, school hall, art classroom and a dedicated learning support and extension centre.
‘Pathways’, as it is known at Minimbah, comprises a large classroom space and several adjoining withdrawal spaces for individual or group remediation work, reading recovery and extension activities. In late 2009, work was completed on a new Year 5/6 Homestead and library building. This building was specifically designed to promote student engagement and rich learning. The flexible interior spaces support a range of activities and more specialised lessons such as Science, Technology and Film Production.
There are three adventure playgrounds at the Minimbah Campus. Foundation – Year 2 students, Year 3–4 students and Years 5 and 6 students each have their own space.
