Mitcham Primary School has benefited from State and Federal Government funding for major works since 2000, leading to improvements in the school's facilities. All our classrooms have been redeveloped over the last ten years, and are in good condition.
The office and staff facilities were redeveloped in 2000, and classrooms renovated and rebuilt in 2002 and 2005. Six of the classrooms have operable walls meaning great flexibility in learning opportunities. The library was built in 2005 and has two large withdrawal areas for intervention programs. An Information and Communication Technology centre was constructed in 2002. The school stripped the old library building and rebuilt it as an Art and Craft facility in 2005.
The school created a community co-operative and built a Multi-Purpose hall in 2002. The previous Art room was cut into two pieces, relocated and rejoined in 2002 and now is used as a Music room. In 2008, the school commenced building a brilliant Performing Arts Centre, which has expanded the range of opportunities available for the children spectacularly. It was completed in 2009. It has been equipped with change room facilities, large stage area (and back stage area), along with undercroft storage and full toilet facilities. It seats around 500 children.
All asphalt areas and stormwater drains were renewed in 2004, and two Plexi-Pave tennis courts were constructed at the same time enabling tennis lessons to be offered at the school as part of the comprehensive extra-curricula activities available at Mitcham PS..
The school benefited from the Building the Education Revolution Commonwealth Government facilities initiative in 2010/2011, with the demolition of the existing toilet facilities, replaced by two new self-contained toilet blocks and an eight room classroom block with two internal breakout areas. The building was equipped with the latest Touch Screen technology. There is also an outdoor learning area built as part of this project. Construction of the classroom block was completed in September 2011.
The rest of the school was equipped with Touch Screen technology after the BER building was completed.
In 2013, the school embarked on another project, replacing the roof in Block A along the central corridor, creating a new staffroom space and staff kitchen, conference room, new Principal's Office, Staff Gymnasium, and a Media Studio. The school also constructed an outdoor Chess Centre by completely rebuilding a disused shelter shed.
The School Council is now undertaking Master Planning for the grounds and will institute a five year development plan.
