Payne Road State School is very lucky to have such picturesque natural surroundings, as well as well-appointed and attractive classrooms and educational facilities. The school is set-back from the road, next to Fish Creek, and surrounded by Mount Coot-tha and the green leafy suburb of The Gap. The grounds and outdoor facilities include two adventure playground areas (one dedicated for the Early Childhood Precinct/Prep Area), netball courts, cricket practice nets, a tennis court, undercover eating and playing areas, an Environmental Garden area, a school oval, and extensive landscaped gardens.
Parking is available at the front of the school along Payne Road; and in Kernel Street. Please be mindful of the parking restrictions as sign-posted.
Classrooms and teaching areas include eleven teaching classrooms, Administration Building, a spacious staffroom, a Learning Resource Centre (library) with computerised borrowing facilities and internet access, a multi-award-winning tuckshop, a brand-new start-of-the-art school hall, a multi-purpose activities building (Outside School Hours Care building), music room and community meeting room. We are also very privileged that all our classrooms have air-conditioning. Some of the school’s facilities are available for hire; please contact the School for hiring details.
