Our school maintains links to the ocean and Greek theme of the local area, as reflected in the name Alkimos. For example, our facilities have been given Greek names and our factions have names with Greek origins. This includes classroom blocks and the covered assembly area.
When constructed, all new public schools had an allocation to develop art works as part of the building program. This is known as the ‘Percent for Art’ project. Our school has an impressive mural in the Library, interesting sculptures in the Early Childhood playground and near Beta block, and many small djidi-djidi sculptures around the school. How many can you find?
Our loose parts hub attractively displays a mural, featuring images of Carnaby’s black cockatoos. These beautiful birds are native to the wider Alkimos area and we proud to ensure that connection remains a strong one.
