The Village Location
Coolangatta was chosen for the birthplace of The Village School due to its proximity to patrolled beaches, being surrounded by numerous green spaces and sporting facilities like the Coolangatta Surf Life Saving Club and Bowls Club. In addition, the Coolangatta Library and an Artist in Residence and Exhibition space are located on the first floor of The Strand Shopping Centre, both run by Gold Coast City Council. Coolangatta provides the perfect ecosystem for the school’s place-based education to begin and flourish.
The physical location of the School is on Level 1, 91 Griffith street (Google link for location here.)
The site is currently undergoing a fit-out so here are some “before photos”. Since then, the walls have been painted, the carpet removed, the floorboards polished and a luxury carpet selected.
More photos will come soon.
