Bella Vista Public School

Dharug Country / Bella Vista
NSW Department of Education

The design for Bella Vista includes learning spaces based on new educational concepts for Future Focused Learning for 1000 students. The school provides forty Home Bases including three special needs facilities. These innovative Home Bases are flexible spaces adaptable for a range of educational programmes and strategies. Many of Bella Vista’s facilities are shared with the broader community. The School Hall and playing field, for example, are partly funded by the Hills Shire Council and include two indoor basketball courts and a Fédération Internationale de Football Association-approved (FIFA) synthetic surface soccer field.
